Rule 20: Deduction from grants


The SRA may deduct from any grant the costs that would have been legally due to the defaulting practitioner so that the applicant will not be in a better position by reason of a grant than he, she or it would otherwise have been in.


The SRA may within its discretion deduct from any grant all monies already recovered by an applicant and monies which either will be or should have been recovered.
