There are trade relationships that give the impression that a legally binding agreement has been reached. However, if the test for terminating the contract is not met, there cannot be a contract. Once the conditions are included in an agreement, their importance will have to be determined. Since the introduction of legislation regulating abusive clauses, English courts have become firmer in their general guiding principle that agreements are interpreted to reflect the intentions of the parties from the point of view of a reasonable person. This situation has changed considerably from the beginning of the 20th century, when the English courts were involved in a theory of literary interpretation, partly defended by Lord Halsbury. [165] In the mid-20th century, when concerns about unfair clauses, and in particular exclusion clauses, intensified, the courts turned to the other position and made strong use of the doctrine of contrast. The ambiguities contained in clauses that exclude or restrict a party`s liability would be interpreted with respect to the person who relies on them. In the main case, Canada Steamship Lines Ltd burned the crown scales in the Port of Montreal against R[166] and destroyed goods from The Canada Team lines. Lord Morton considered a clause in the Crown`s limitation of liability contract to be “damages… a… Goods…

sound… “was not sufficient to excuse liability in the event of negligence” as the clause could also be interpreted as a reference to a strict liability under another clause of the contract. Instead, it would exclude it. Some judges, in particular Lord Denning, have wished to go further by introducing a rule of “fundamental offence” which cannot exclude any liability in the event of a very serious breach of the treaties. [167] While the rules remain applicable if the statute cannot help, these hostile interpretations[168] were generally perceived as a violation of the clear meaning of the language. [169] Scanlon defends each of these contract management rules by comparing the benefits they entail to the burdens they impose and arguing that, given the balance between them for thieves who bear the burden of rejecting the rules, it would be inappropriate and that promises can rightly benefit from the benefits of regulation. , as required by the formal structure of the theory of damage. Scanlon argues that the benefits of protecting expectations regarding sola changes are considerable (Scanlon 1998: 302-3) [25] and that, given the conditions of mutual knowledge, etc., which are incorporated into the general presentation of promises, the burdens imposed by this rule on celebrities are low. [26] Given this balance, Scanlon also concludes that the benefits of legal application of contracts are significant,[27] while the cost of enforceable force is much less. [28] Scanlon therefore again concludes that, given this balance, no one could reasonably reject legal regulation that imposes contractual expectations (Scanlon 2001:108).
