CHAPTER 2

THE WEAPONS OF LAW

2.4OTHER STATUTORY INTERVENTIONS
Print

Thus far we have explored the development and application of Common Law as it relates to Contract and, in the matter of Statutory Intervention, we have highlighted the considerable powers available under Statutory Misrepresentation.  


But there are several other important Statutory Acts and Orders laid down by the legislature that greatly augment the consumer’s arsenal. And, while it will be evident that the specific provisions of Statute Law primarily serve to codify precedents already set by Common Law, these specific provisions must be seen as drawing into focus a legal interpretation of what would instance a breach of those Common Law precedents.

This specific instancing within Statutory Provisions, of what constitutes a breach of Common Law, will be particularly instructive when we study the Statutory Legislation governing ‘investment business’ relating to Consumer Credit Transactions.
