Byron v Eastern Caribbean Amalgamated Bank (Antigua and Barbuda)

Contract – Construction. There was a great deal to be said for the view that the words used in a purchase and assumption agreement for the appellant bank's purchase of certain assets and the assumption of certain liabilities of the respondent's former employer had included the bank's liability to the respondent. However, the Privy Council humbly advise Her Majesty that the case had to be remitted to the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal, as there had been no evidence directed towards that issue.
