Separate settlements: reopening cases

If the transaction which is claimed to have given rise to a new settlement took place before 31 March 1982 then the view taken at the time should be regarded as of little importance. If it took place after that date then a request for different treatment should be resisted unless the original view was clearly based on an error.
