(b)may substitute for that decision such other decision as seems to the Department proper, and for that purpose may give any such direction as the Department might have given if the appeal had been an application made to the Department under Article 15(1)( a) and the power to dispense with or relax the provision in question had been exercisable by the Department under that Article.
