The general rule is that a party is under no duty to disclose material facts known to him but not to the other party.

Thus in Fletcher v Krell (1872), it was held that a person who applied for the post of governess did not need to disclose the fact that she was a divorcee.

A person must however disclose facts that falsify an earlier statement made by him.
