Williams is about the validity of practical benefits as consideration for a promise to pay more money. Foakes states that normal consideration is required for a promise to accept only part of a debt - therefore practical benefit is not enough in part-payment cases. High Trees concerns the doctrine of promissory estoppel, which can stop a person from going back on a promise to accept a part-payment if the payer relied on the promise. So in promissory estoppel the lender essentially is forced to stick to the promise even if there is no consideration for it, but it is equity forcing them to do that and not contract law. Notably, estoppel normally just suspends the obligation to pay the full debt rather than extinguishing it, so it is not always as good for the debtor as having varied the contract.
