(ii)one or more conditions applicable to pre-cut off times that would prevent an off-sale during the relevant period where the alcohol is sold in an open container;

(iii)one or more conditions applicable to pre-cut off times that would prevent an off-sale during the relevant period where it is a sale for delivery.

(5)The premises licence is to be treated as if, at the beginning of day X, it is varied so that, in so far as and for so long as it authorises off-sales during the relevant period, it includes—
