Marginal note:Set-off and recovery of excess compensation

 Where any compensation has been paid to a person in respect of an expropriated interest pursuant to an offer made to him under section 16, the amount so paid to that person shall be deducted from the amount of the compensation adjudged by the Court under this Part to be payable to him in respect thereof, and where the amount so paid exceeds the amount so adjudged to be payable, the excess constitutes a debt due to the Crown and may be recovered by the Crown in any court of competent jurisdiction.
