This case also indicates that one of the main heads of liability in the Sunday Times case, namely improper public pressure on a party to proceedings, has survived the 1981 Act.
ENGLISH law governing remedies for interference with goods is exceedingly technical, partly because of the long survival and overlap of a number of different heads of liability and partly because the law, though tortious in form, is largely proprietary in function.
Where the Act prohibits exclusion of a head of liability the clause which seeks to exclude that liability remains valid and can be enforced in relation to other heads of liability, subject to the other provisions of the Act.
