Description
This fifth edition is designed to bring the book up to date. In the fourth edition, the principal cause of changes to the text was primary and secondary legislation, especially in the field of consumer protection. That flurry of legislative activity has subsided, at least on the surface, although behind the scenes a new raft of secondary legislation is waiting, ready to come into force if the UK leaves the EU under the terms of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. At the time of preparing this edition it is still not yet certain whether (or when, or on what terms) the UK will withdraw from the EU, and therefore the text does not yet take withdrawal into account beyond noting those areas of the law that are based on EU Directives or Regulations. Indeed, the new text incorporates two recent developments in English law which give effect to developments in EU law, the Package Travel Directive (2015) and the Prospectus Regulation (2017)—the latter coming into force only in late July 2019, just as this book was finalized. The work of the EU in areas relevant to this book continues: a new Directive on certain aspects concerning contracts for the sale of goods was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council on 20 May 2019, but it will apply only to contracts concluded on or after 1 January 2022 (the date for transposition by Member States). The main changes to the text in this edition are therefore to reflect the steady flow of case law, at all levels. Amongst the many new cases included in this edition, the Supreme Court has given us decisions on contractual interpretation, and on a number of areas of the law of tort which impact on liability for misrepresentation: the scope of the SAAMCO principle, the test for the existence of a duty of care in negligence, loss of chance, and accessory liability. The Court of Appeal has decided questions on the test for inducement/causation, contractual estoppel, the interpretation and effectiveness of clauses excluding liability for misrepresentation, the duty of care in negligence for statements, the (subjective) test for rectification, remedies in contract and in tort (including the award of exemplary damages for deceit), and liability for another's deceit; and has applied earlier decisions of the Supreme Court on the operation of the defense of illegality, and the SAAMCO principle. There have been decisions at first instance on common mistake, the duty of care in negligence, remedies in contract and in tort, accessory liability for deceit, and various matters of procedure.
