Invitation to Treat in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • R v Roe
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 18 Feb 2010

    It is not too much to say that the violence and the threats combined will have been literally terrifying to this woman. They took whatever they could get their hands on including, as we have said, her engagement ring. They also took a number of other items which had long been in the family and which had particular sentimental associations for her so that their replacement even by insurance is no replacement at all.

    The remaining question is whether a starting point of 12 years after trial was manifestly excessive for this offence by this offender. We are unable to agree with the elegantly phrased invitation to treat this case as equivalent to Crummack or Doran. Twelve years seems to us to be at the top of the available range for this offence.

  • Blackpool and Fylde Aero Club Ltd v Blackpool Borough Council
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 25 May 1990

    I readily accept that contracts are not to be lightly implied. Having examined what the parties said and did, the court must be able to conclude with confidence both that the parties intended to create contractual relations and that the agreement was to the effect contended for. It must also, in most cases, be able to answer the question posed by Mustill LJ in The Kapetan Markos N.L. (NO.2) [1987] 2 Ll. 321 at 331: "What was the mechanism for offer and acceptance?" 321

  • Michael Wilson & Partners Ltd v T I Sinclair
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 28 Apr 2020

    This judgment, exactly as it appears above, was produced in draft in the usual way and sent, under embargo, to the parties for their editorial corrections. Professional lawyers ought to know that the circulation of draft judgments for this purpose should not be taken as a pretext to reargue the case.

  • I (Children)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 May 2019

    I would merely remind practitioners that receiving a judge's draft judgment is not an “invitation to treat”, nor is it an opportunity to critique the judgment or to enter into negotiations with the judge as to the outcome or to reargue the case in an attempt to water down unpalatable findings.

  • Nagle v Feilden
    • Court of Appeal
    • 22 Feb 1966

    The common law of England has for centuries recognised that a man has a right to work at his trade or profession without being unjustly excluded from it. He is not to be shut out from it at the whim of those having the governance of it. If they make a rule which enables them to reject his application arbitrarily or capriciously, not reasonably, that rule is bad.

  • Four Seasons Holdings Incorporated v Brownlie
    • Supreme Court
    • 19 Dec 2017

    What is meant is (i) that the claimant must supply a plausible evidential basis for the application of a relevant jurisdictional gateway; (ii) that if there is an issue of fact about it, or some other reason for doubting whether it applies, the Court must take a view on the material available if it can reliably do so; but (iii) the nature of the issue and the limitations of the material available at the interlocutory stage may be such that no reliable assessment can be made, in which case there is a good arguable case for the application of the gateway if there is a plausible (albeit contested) evidential basis for it.
