[F26(f)a direction by the Fitness to Practise Committee of the General Optical Council under section 13F(2) of the Opticians Act 1989 (powers of Fitness to Practise Committee), other than a direction that a registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired solely by virtue of a matter falling within section 13D(2)(f) of that Act;]

(b)the body which made the relevant decision is to be a respondent.

(8)The court may—

(b)allow the appeal and quash the relevant decision,
