This note shows that the permutation instructions presented by Zardini in "Truth without contra(di)ction" (RSL, 2011) for eliminating cuts on universally quantified formulas in the sequent calculus for the non-contractive theory of truth IKTω are inadequate. To that purpose the note presents a derivation in the sequent calculus for IKTω ending with an application of cut on a universally quantified formula which the permutation instructions cannot deal with. The counter-example is of the kind that leaves open the question whether cut can be shown to be eliminable in the sequent calculus for IKTω with an alternative strategy.
