278 Priority given to person who distrains on goods

If a landlord or other person has distrained on goods or effects of the bankrupt during the 20 working days before the adjudication, the preferential claims set out in section 274 are a first charge on the goods or effects so distrained, or the proceeds from their sale; but if any money is paid to a claimant under that charge, the landlord or other person has the same rights of priority as that claimant.
