The parties had been involved in a bitter family and commercial dispute. It had been settled, but it was now disputed whether that settlement was effective or was void for a failure to comply with section 2(1) of the 1969 Act. The judge below had held that though the requirements of section 2 had not been satisfied, the agreement did not fall within the ambit of the section, and was therefore not avoided.
Held: The appeal failed.
