HC Deb 17 December 1919 vol 123 c604

If the Court in any action for infringement of a patent finds that any one or more of the claims in the specification, in respect of which infringement is alleged, are valid, it shall, subject to its discretion as to costs and to such terms as to Amendments as it may deem desirable, grant relief in respect of any of such claims which are infringed without regard to the in validity of any other claim in the specification. In exercising such discretion, the Court may take into consideration the conduct of the parties in inserting such invalid claims in the specification or permitting them to remain there.

After the word "costs" ["discretion as to costs"], insert the words "and as to the date from which damages should be reckoned." —Agreed to.
