Lloyds TSB Bank Plc v Hayward: CA 12 Dec 2002

The parties disputed, inter alia, what had been agreed at a meeting. A note, prepared after the meeting, was claimed to record it. The judge had declined to make a finding in relation to the date when a note had been written, saying only that, since he regarded the date when, and the circumstances in which, it came to be made as wholly uncertain, the note was of no help to him in deciding what had been agreed at the meeting.
Held: The court remitted the case for rehearing. The judge was in error. He should have made a finding. Jonathan Parker LJ: the judge should have tackled the issue of the note ‘head on’ and have made a finding about it.
