Report No. 111

7.10. Salmond's view.-

The editors of the latest edition of Salmond on Torts record their views as under1:-

"This legislation shows that change is not equivalent to reform; it has led to gross injustice, not least in that the court may be obliged to disregard a vital fact which has happened, namely, the widow's re-marriage to a wealthy second husband."2
