Question: Angela was visiting her friend Betsy. She complained of a severe headache and Betsy gave her a box of painkillers that had been prescribed by her (Betsy’s) doctor. On the outside of the box and on a leaflet inside, there was a note reading: “Do not consume with alcohol. May cause severe nausea and diarrhoea.” Angela had drunk two small glasses of wine. She took two of the painkillers (the recommended dose for an adult). An hour later she became violently ill and was admitted to the Downbeat Hospital. She was examined by Conrad, a doctor, and told him about the pills she had taken. Conrad arranged for her to be admitted and prescribed a drug to treat her condition. Daphne, the nurse on duty, misread the doctor’s notes and gave her only 10 per cent of the dosage that Conrad prescribed. Angela became more seriously ill and required painful and debilitating abdominal surgery. There is a strong possibility that, if she had been given the correct dosage, she would have recovered after a few days.

It has now been established that Angela suffered from an extremely rare allergy to one of the ingredients of the painkillers. No other case has been identified where a person taking one of these painkillers suffered a comparable reaction. It cannot be established whether the wine had contributed to the reaction.

Advise Angela as to any claims in negligence against the Downbeat Hospital.

Answer: The above question demands discussion whether Betsy (B), Conrad (C) and Daphne (D) had breached duty of care to Angela (A) and whether there is any intervening factor that is likely to...

Question: SECTION B – BUSINESS TENANCIES
Question: Cedric runs a tobacconist/news agency business in Northern Ireland from premises that he has leased from Heurelho since 2012. The premises are located adjacent to the gates of a school and because trade is poor during school holidays, Cedric closes his business at such times and goes on extended foreign trips.

Heurelho suspects that Cedric’s principal income derives from the sale of cigarettes to children, however, it has been so far impossible to prove this and Cedric has not prima facie broken any covenant in his lease.

Cedric’s lease will soon expire and Heurelho does not want to renew it but instead wants to either run a similar business on the premises himself, or alternatively, demolish the premises and redevelop the land.

Considering relevant cases, advise Heurelho of the requirements of the Business Tenancies (NI) Order 1996 and how they would impact on his plans. Explain how your answer would differ (if at all) if Cedric was actually convicted of the illegal sale of tobacco on the premises.

Answer: Cedrics business is situated in Northern Ireland therefore the legislation that governs this area of law is the Business Tenancies (NI) Order 1996. Had the business been situated in England or Wales,...

Question: ‘Speaking of the equivalent English law before the Abortion Act of 1967, Lord Diplock in Royal College of Nursing v DHSS (1981) described the state of the law as “unsatisfactory and uncertain”. This continues to be the position in Northern Ireland – a position which in the best interests of not only the medical and legal professions but more importantly of the public at large ought to be remedied. The Abortion Act 1967 may have its faults but it presents a much more coherent and understandable position than that which continues to prevail in this jurisdiction.’ Northern Health and Social Services Board v A and others [1994] NIJB 1 per MacDermott LJ at 3.
