(a)grant the permission except on the recommendation of the committee;

(b)if the committee recommend that the permission be granted subject to conditions or that if it is granted requirements should be imposed in relation to the carrying on of the business in question, grant that permission without imposing those conditions or those requirements,

but nothing in this subsection shall be taken to limit the discretion of the Board to refuse altogether to grant the permission or, if they grant the permission, to impose further conditions or requirements.
