Abstract: For continuous differential inclusions the classical bang-bang property is known to fail, yet a weak form of it is established here, in the case where the right hand side is a multifunction whose values are closed convex and bounded sets with nonempty interior contained in a reflexive and separable Banach space. Our approach is based on the Baire category method.
