Prohibited Behaviour in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Padfield v Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
    • House of Lords
    • 14 Febrero 1968

    Parliament must have conferred the discretion with the intention that it should be used to promote the policy and objects of the Act; the policy and objects of the Act must be determined by construing the Act as a whole and construction is always a matter of law for the Court.

  • Roche Products Ltd and Others v Provimi Ltd
    • Queen's Bench Division (Commercial Court)
    • 06 Mayo 2003

    It seems to me to be arguable that where two corporate entities are part of an "udertaking" (call it "Undertaking A") and one of those entities has entered into an infringing agreement with other, independent, "undertakings", then if another corporate entity which is part of Undertaking A then implements that infringing agreement, it is also infringing Article 81.

  • Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Europe Ltd and Others v Dow Deutscheland Inc. and Others
    • Queen's Bench Division (Commercial Court)
    • 27 Octubre 2009

    The Dow Defendants also relied upon Article 5(3) of the Judgments Regulation to establish jurisdiction. In view of my decision on Article 6(1) it is strictly unnecessary to lengthen this judgment yet further with a discussion of all the arguments. I will simply express my conclusions as shortly as possible. However, it is also common ground that if jurisdiction is established on that basis it is only established in respect of the damage which occurred in England.

  • Sel-imperial Ltd (Claimant Respondent) v The British Standards Institution (Defendant Applicant)
    • Chancery Division
    • 23 Abril 2010

    Moreover, it is important that competition claims are pleaded properly. To contend that a party has infringed competition law involves a serious allegation of breach of a quasi-public law, which can indeed lead to the imposition of financial penalties as well as civil liability. A defendant faced with such a claim is entitled to know what specific conduct or agreement is complained of and how that is alleged to violate the law.

  • National Grid Plc v The Gas & Electricity Markets Authority
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 Febrero 2010

    I would reject Mr Turner's overarching submission as to the need for any finding of abuse to be based on a benchmark. It is true that benchmarks of a kind have been applied in certain pricing contexts, such as in drawing a dividing line between competitive low pricing and abusive predatory pricing, and that according to para 21 of its guidance document the Commission's own approach to assessing anti-competitive foreclosure is usually to make a comparison with an appropriate counterfactual.

  • Crehan v Inntrepreneur Pub Company CPC
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 01 Julio 2004

    In our judgment it was inappropriate for the judge to adopt the approach that he should receive such evidence and hear such submissions, as the effect of the judge second-guessing the Commission and concluding that the Commission was wrong has been to create an irreconcilable inconsistency in the application of the Community's competition policy to the relevant market. We do not say that the Commission is infallible; far from it.

  • R v GG Plc
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 09 Noviembre 2007

    In relation to Count 1 it is alleged that the defendants sought to induce the Department to make grossly inflated payments for the antibiotics. They held secret meetings to exchange confidential information on pricing and sales in order to devise and implement the scheme to control prices and manipulate supply. There were alleged to have been some fifteen meetings, the true purpose of which was disguised under the pretext that they were connected with packaging.
