1. The power is subject to any prior interest or charge affecting the property;

2. A payment must be in proportion to amounts paid from other available funds (if any);

3. The power is not affected by the existence of a person bound by law to maintain or educate the infant; nor it is affected by the fact that particular sums have already been set aside for this purpose;

4. The power exists whether  the infant’s interest is vested or contingent (provided, in the latter case, that the trust carriers the intermediate income);

5. Payments out of capital may be valid, but should normally only be made under S.34 (see below) or  with the consent of the court;

6. The residue of the income must be accumulated and invested;

7. The trust instrument may exclude this power.
