  • Both seem fine. Could explain why you feel one of them is not correct? – Skooba Sep 10 '18 at 17:19
  • Why do you think that there has to be one right answer? That simply is not how language works. – tchrist Sep 10 '18 at 20:38
  • Thanks - I just wanted to make sure if there was a right and a wrong way on this occasion as it is in a formal/legal document. Many thanks for your help. – Tim Sep 11 '18 at 18:54

In both examples, both 'all' and 'true' modify 'the following', so the sentences are functionally equivalent. I personally prefer the latter usage, but either one is more than acceptable.
