Conflicting instruction from trainers

I've been training up to be an instructor since November (can only do 1 day a week) and I've noticed some instructors tell a student to do a final lifesaver before turning left or right at a T-junction while others have said if you have already changed your position there is no need for a life saver at this point. There is good reasoning behind both of these methods.

What do you guys practice or teach and why?

I had different instructors when I took my test (in 2006).

One of the instructors commented on the fact that I did lifesavers before turning left or right at a junction (which I was under the impression that you were supposed to do). He said I didn't need to do them, but that my doing them wasn't a problem since it didn't affect my ability to ride the bike and carry out the required manoeuvre.

None of the other instructors commented on it.

I'm not sure what the 'official line' is though.

Cheers mate, thats pretty much the same as I've heard!

I always do them, in face, I even do them in the car. They do what the title suggests.
