I ask the promoters to considernot necessarily todaytwo minor points. Subsections (4) and (6) start with the word but. I was brought up to believe that any sentence that starts with the word but is not needed. I do not think it is a condition. If one reads the amount recoverable is limited, does it mean the same as with the but added? If the but has no purpose, there is no point in taking it out and no point in putting it in the first place.
A more serious point relates to a possible ambiguity in line 30, which states that
the amount recoverable under a compromise agreement is limited to the amount that would be recoverable.
Does that mean limited to as a ceiling, or is it limited to a precise amount? It is unclear.
