(2) In deciding whether or not to grant an application under section 62, the Authority is to take into consideration any submissions made by the Director-General or the Commissioner of Police in relation to the application.

(3) If, following the death of a licensee, the Authority is so satisfied in relation to more than one such person, the Authority may grant the application of such one of them as the Authority thinks fit.

(4) The granting of an application under section 62 takes effect with respect to a licence when the Authority endorses the licence accordingly.
