DISCUSS Equity and Trusts Law

While I am not particularly convinced by the distinction, it appears to me that a more satisfactory way of distinguishing Hunter from the other cases is that it was concerned with shares, and not with chattels. Per Neuberger J in Re Harvard Securities Ltd (in liq.) & Anor. [1997] 2 BCLC 369 at 383

Critically analyse the above statement with reference to the decisions in Hunter v Moss [1994] 1 WLR 452, Re Goldcorp Exchange Ltd (in receivership) [1995] 1 AC 74 and Re London Wine Co Shippers [1986] P.C.C. 121. Do you agree that it is appropriate to draw a distinction between shares and chattels, or do you think that there is a better way of distinguishing these decisions?
