A dispute arose between SMC and the Revenue and Customs Commissioners as to whether the sale had been entered into in good faith, and whether the court should exercise its discretion to validate it. The Chancery Division held that, on the evidence, the sale had been entered into in good faith, and that court would exercise its discretion to validate it.
