Sample text

The agent’s authority will usually be an actual authority, that is, an authority which he has expressly or impliedly been granted by his principal. But the scope of the agent’s authority may, most importantly, be enlarged by the addition of his ostensible authority. 06 Ostensible authority is another manifestation of the operation of estoppel. If P represents to C that his agent A has an authority wider than, in fact, has been expressly or impliedly granted by P to A, and in reliance on that representation C contracts with P through A, then P will be stopped (‘estopped’) from denying that the scope of A’s authority was wide enough to include the contract that has been made.

04 What became known as Lord Atkin’s ‘neighbour’ principle was initially criticised as being too broad, but in time it became accepted and remains today the central concept to an understanding of the tort of negligence. In the 1970s there was a more ambitious development of a general principle of liability in negligence. This was based on a ‘two-stage test’ derived from the decisions of the House of Lords in Dorset Yacht Co Ltd v Home Office [1970] AC 1004 and Anns v Merton London Borough Council [1978] AC 728.

The traditional approach to defining the situations that give rise to a duty of care was based upon a process of piecemeal extension by analogy with existing cases, rather than on the basis of a general principle. The first notable attempt to elicit a more principled approach occurred in the landmark case of Donoghue v Stevenson [1932] AC 562. There, the plaintiff, who was given a bottle of ginger beer by a friend, alleged that she had become ill after drinking it because of the presence of a decomposed snail in the bottle.
