Pleading – Amendment. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the defendant's appeal against an order whereby judgment was given for the claimant in the sum of £13,397. It held, among other things, that the recorder had erred in principle in having taken the course that he had in regard to allowing an amendment to the claim. Further, the recorder's analysis in respect of breach of duty was deficient in a number of respects and his reasoning in relation to causation was also flawed.
