There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Bills of Exchange Act 1882. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
Where a bill has been lost before it is overdue the person who was the holder of it may apply to the drawer to give him another bill of the same tenor, giving security to the drawer if required to indemnify him against all persons whatever in case the bill alleged to have been lost shall be found again.
If the drawer on request as aforesaid refuses to give such duplicate bill he may be compelled to do so.
In any action or proceeding upon a bill, the court or a judge may order that the loss of the instrument shall not be set up, provided an indemnity be given to the satisfaction of the court or judge against the claims of any other person upon the instrument in question.]
