Hi Meerkat,

Give permission but impose a penalty for doing something ????T???

Answer could be sanction (double meaning)

sanction - to give permission
sanction - to impose a penalty

Good luck.

Afraid not. Looked at possible anagrams and alternative words for wheeler dealing eg. hustler.

Any more letters?
