Interlink Express Parcels Ltd v Night Trunkers Ltd and Another: CA 14 Mar 2001

Where the issue was whether a temporary worker was to be deemed to be an employee (in this case for licensing purposes) of the main contractor, the proper test was the degree of control exercised by the deemed employer. The purpose of the section was to ensure that responsibility for the operation of a vehicle was known. This was a context of tort, rather than of contract.
