Proper Provision in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • EI Du Pont de Nemours & Company and Another v Agnew
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 Julio 1987

    The service of suit clause did contain a reference to New York, which is the proper law for which the insurers contend. Third, the intended effect of this clause, providing for determination of disputes in accordance with the law of the court in which the insurer is sued, does not suggest that the law of any State of the Union is already the proper law.

  • Thomas v Thomas
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 02 Mayo 1995

    Another is that where a spouse enjoys access to wealth but no absolute entitlement to it (as in the case, for example, of a beneficiary under a discretionary trust or someone who is dependent on the generosity of a relative), the court will not act in direct invasion of the rights of, or usurp the discretion exercisable by, a third party.

  • Bank of Credit and Commerce International SA ((in Liquidation)) v Ali (No. 1)
    • House of Lords
    • 01 Marzo 2001

    To ascertain the intention of the parties the court reads the terms of the contract as a whole, giving the words used their natural and ordinary meaning in the context of the agreement, the parties' relationship and all the relevant facts surrounding the transaction so far as known to the parties. To ascertain the parties' intentions the court does not of course inquire into the parties' subjective states of mind but makes an objective judgment based on the materials already identified.

  • R (Alconbury Developments Ltd) v Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions
    • House of Lords
    • 09 Mayo 2001

    The formulation of policies is a perfectly proper course for the provision of guidance in the exercise of an administrative discretion. Indeed policies are an essential element in securing the coherent and consistent performance of administrative functions. Provided that the policy is not regarded as binding and the authority still retains a free exercise of discretion the policy may serve the useful purpose of giving a reasonable guidance both to applicants and decision-makers.

  • Cavendish Square Holding BV v Talal El Makdessi; ParkingEye Ltd v Beavis
    • Supreme Court
    • 04 Noviembre 2015

    The true test is whether the impugned provision is a secondary obligation which imposes a detriment on the contract-breaker out of all proportion to any legitimate interest of the innocent party in the enforcement of the primary obligation. The innocent party can have no proper interest in simply punishing the defaulter. His interest is in performance or in some appropriate alternative to performance.

  • MacLeod v MacLeod
    • Privy Council
    • 17 Diciembre 2008

    In other words, the court is looking for a change in the circumstances in the light of which the financial arrangements were made, the sort of change which would make those arrangements manifestly unjust, or for a failure to make proper provision for any child of the family. On top of that, of course, even if there is no change in the circumstances, it is contrary to public policy to cast onto the public purse an obligation which ought properly to be shouldered within the family.

  • Anisminic Ltd v Foreign Compensation Commission
    • House of Lords
    • 17 Diciembre 1968

    But there are many cases where, although the tribunal had jurisdiction to enter on the enquiry, it has done or failed to do something in the course of the enquiry which is of such a nature that its decision is a nullity. It may in perfect good faith have misconstrued the provisions giving it power to act so that it failed to deal with the question remitted to it and decided some question which was not remitted to it.
