Payless notices for CEs yet to be agreed

+1 vote
If an application for payment includes application for amounts claimed for on CE quotation (and work already completed)  that the contractor is delaying agreeing to, does the contractor have to issue a Pay Less Notice regarding not paying these amounts or can they simply not pay these amounts as the CE is yet to be formally implemented?

As I understand it, if you, as a Subcontractor, have applied for these amounts, then the Contractor would have to issue a Payless Notice stating why you are not (yet) entitled to them i.e. they have not been agreed / contractually implemented.
