Be rest assured

The expression rest assured should not be preceded by be like in the following examples:

  • The investor community can be rest assured that the new government would not pursue any policy that will create fundamental difficulties for growth in savings and investment. (Indian Express)
  • Twi-hard fans can be rest assured all is well in their world again. (
  • Just like all Little Green Sheep mattresses they are 100% chemical free so parents can be rest assured their child is sleeping on a bed of the highest quality despite being away from home. (
  • If you are unsure or not net savvy, please be rest assured, our technical team can do all that for you. (
