Abstract

On 29 October 1998, the House of Lords in Kleinwort Benson Ltd v Lincoln City Council, and other appeals . . . finally abrogated the rule barring recovery of payments made under a mistake of law in restitution in England. This article seeks to examine whether the Singapore courts should follow the English approach or whether the difficulties which were articulated by the minority in the House of Lords should stand in the way of such a development locally.
