training and meals, shall form a proper charge on the school 
fund.

inspected school. 

(5.) The county council of any county or the magistrates of

the same, with such modifications as appear to Her Majesty to 
be necessary or proper for adapting such provisions to a day indus¬ 
trial school, and bringing them into conformity with this Act; and 
such Order may provide that a child may be punished for an 
offence by being sent to a certified industrial in lieu of a certified 
reformatory school, or may otherwise mitigate any punishment 
imposed by the said Act.

in Council, to revoke and vary any Order in Council made under 
this section.

session of Parliament, and while in force shall have effect as if 
it were enacted in this Act. 

(10.) A Secretary of State may from time to time make, and 
when made revoke and vary, the forms of orders for sending a 
child to a day industrial school, and the manner in which children 
are to be sent to such school. 

(11.) If a Secretary of State is of opinion that, by reason of a 
change of circumstances or otherwise, a certified day industrial 
school ceases to be necessary or expedient for the proper training 
and control of the children of any class of population in the neigh¬ 
bourhood of that school, he may, after due notice, withdraw the 
certificate of the school, and thereupon such school shall cease to be 
a certified day industrial school. 

Provided that the reasons for withdrawing such certificate shall 
be laid before both Houses of Parliament within one month after 
notice of the withdrawal is given if Parliament be then sitting, 
or if not, within one month after the then next meeting of 
Parliament. 

4 . Section ten of the Education (Scotland) Act, 1883, is hereby 
repealed, and in lieu thereof it is enacted as follows :—Where an

board, may, if it think fit, order as follows :

months, give him a licence under section twenty-seven of the 
Industrial Schools Act, 1866, to live out of the school, but the

than one month nor more than six months after the date of the 
notice) to abate such nuisance.

to such highway, may by summary order direct the occupier to 
abate such nuisance; and on his failure to comply'with such order 
within a reasonable time the local authority may do whatever may 
be necessary in execution of the order, and recover in a summary 
manner the expenses incurred in connexion therewith.

CHAPTER 40. 

An Act to make provision for certain purposes relating 
to Local Loans. [12th September 1893.] 

B E it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and 
with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and 
Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, 
and by the authority of the same, as follows: 

1. Whereas it is expedient that the principal of the several 
local loans specified in the schedule hereto should, to the extent 
of the amount specified in the last column of that schedule, not 
be reckoned as assets of the local loans fund established under 
the National Debt and Local Loans Act, 1887, therefore the 
principal of the said loans shall, to that extent, be written off 
from the account of assets of the local loans fund, and the pro¬ 
visions of section fifteen of the said Act shall, so far as applicable, 
apply thereto. 

2. Whereas the Public Works Loan Commissioners advanced 
under the Harbours and Passing Tolls, &c. Act, 18(51, to the 
trustees of Mevagissey Harbour, in the year one thousand eight 
hundred and eighty-seven, and subsequent years, sums amounting 
to twenty two thousand pounds, for the purpose of constructing 
the breakwater and works authorised by the Mevag'ssey Harbour 
Order, 1886, and the repayment of those sums with interest is 
secured by mortgages of the harbour undertaking whereby the 
said sums are made repayable with interest by half-yearly payments 
within forty years, interest only being payable during the first 
three ylars: 

And whereas the sum of two thousand pounds (part of the 
said sum of twenty-two thousand pounds) is further secured 
by the guarantee of John Charles Williams, Esquire, M.P., 
as to repayments falling due in respect thereof, within a limited 
period: 

And whereas the whole of the said sum of twenty-two thousand 
pounds now remains unpaid with arrears of interest on twenty 
thousand pounds (part thereof), the interest on the said sum of 
two thousand pounds, guaranteed by the said John Charles 
Williams, having been duly paid: 

And whereas in the year one thousand eight hundred and 
ninety-one the breakwater wa* practically destroyed and the 
harbour has been thereby rendered unfit for navigation:

And whereas the reconstruction of the breakwater and other 
works necessary for the improvement of the harbour are estimated 
to cost thirty-two thousand pounds, and it is expedient to raise 
further loans and to empower the Treasury to authorise such 
arrangements with reference to the said advance of twenty-two* 
thousand pounds and the securities held by the Public Works 
Loan Commissioners for the same as are herein-after mentioned; 
therefore— 

(1.) The Treasury may authorise the Public Works Loan 
Commissioners to agree that, notwithstanding anything in 
the Public Works Loans Act, 1875, any loan or loans to be 
borrowed for the new works for the restoration of the harbour 
shall to such amount not exceeding in the whole the sum of 
twenty-two thousand pounds, and on such conditions as may 
seem expedient, have priority over the advances made by 
the Public Works Loan Commissioners before the passing 
of this Act, and the interest thereon, and that the guarantee 
given by the said John Charles Williams as aforesaid, may 
be released, subject to such conditions as may seem expedient,, 
with a view to a new guarantee for a limited number of years 
being given by the said John Charles Williams for any new 
loan or some part thereof. 

(2.) The Public Works Loan Commissioners may advance the 
said new loan or loans if they are satisfied with the sufficiency 
of the security for the same, irrespectively of the advances 
and interest hereby authorised to be postponed. 

(3.) The principal sum of twenty-two thousand pounds, owing 
by the Mevagissey Harbour trustees as aforesaid, shall be 
written off from the account of assets of the local loans fond, 
and the provision of section fifteen of the National Debt 
and Local Loans Act, 1887, shall, so far as applicable, apply 
thereto. 

3. Whereas the Public Works Loan Commissioners advanced 
under the Harbours and Passing Tolls, &c. Act, 1861, to the 
Rosslare Harbour Commissioners in the year one thousand eight 
hundred and seventy-two, and subsequent years, sums amounting 
together to seventy-five thousand pounds, for the purpose of con¬ 
structing the viaduct, pier, and works authorised by the Rosslare 
Harbour Order, 1869, and those sums were made repayable with 
interest at three and a quarter per cent, per annum by annuities in 
fifty years: 

And whereas the whole of the said principal sum of seventy-five 
thousand pounds, with arrears of interest, now remains unpaid, and 
was, by the Public Works Loans Act, 1887, written off from the 
account of assets of the local loans fund : 

And whereas the harbour is at present producing no revenue 
and further money is necessary for the repair and upholding of 
the harbour works, and negotiations are pending for the transfer 
by the harbour commissioners and the Public Works Loan 
Commissioners of the harbour undertaking free from incumbrances- 
to a company to be constituted for the purpose of developing the

harbour and working the same in connexion with the Waterford 
and Wexford Railway and the Fishguard Bay Railway and Pier 
Undertakings; therefore— 

The Public Works Loan Commissioners may transfer the said 
harbour undertaking to such persons and subject to such conditions 
as to the Treasury may seem expedient, free from the said debt of 
seventy-five thousand pounds, and all interest due and to become 
due in respect thereof, and upon such transfer being completed the 
said debt shall be extinguished, and the amount thereof shall be 
deemed to be a free grant by Parliament.

mentioned in the said schedule may be omitted from any revised 
edition of the statutes published by authority after the passing of 
this Act, and there may be added in the said edition such brief 
statement of the Acts, officers, persons, and things mentioned in

which is now united with the parish of Hackney, and together 
constituting the Hackney District-, have respectively greatly in¬ 
creased in the number of inhabited houses, in population, and in 
rateable value, so as to entitle the said parishes to a more complete 
control and management of their local affairs, and it is therefore 
expedient to amend the principal Act and make provision with 
reference to the said parishes as herein-after contained : 

Be it therefore enacted by the Queen s most Excellent Majesty, 
.by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and 
Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, 
and by the authority of the same, as follows: 


1. In this Act— Interpretation. 

“ The Plumstead Vestry ” means the vestry of the parish of 

Plumstead; “the Saint Mary, Stoke Newington, Vestry” 
means the vestry of the parish of Saint Mary, Stoke 
Newington ; and “ the Hackney Vestry ” means the vestry 
of the parish of Hackney as incorporated by this Act. 

“ The Plumstead District Board ” means the Board of Works for 
the Plumstead District as constituted by the principal Act; 

“ The Lee District Board ” means the Board of Works for the 
Lee District as it will be constituted by the name of the 
Board of Works for the Lee District after the twenty-fifth 
day of March, one thousand eight hundred and ninety-four; 

“The Hackney District Board” means the Board of Works 
for the Hackney District as constituted by the principal Act. 

2. The principal Act as amended by any subsequent Acts and Construction, 
this Act shall be construed together as one Act.

Your Majesty that it may be enacted; and be it enacted by the 
Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and

present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same 
as follows: *

porarily defrayed out of any surpluses which may have been or 

which may be effected as aforesaid upon votes within the same

CHAPTER 65. 

An Act to amend certain provisions relating to Local 
Loans in Ireland. [5th December 1893.] 

B E it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and 
with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and 
Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, 
and by the authority of the same, as follows: 

1.—(1.) Every loan made after the passing of this Act by the 
Commissioners of Public Works in Ireland QfQfithe purpose of 




1893. PMio Work* Loan* {No. 3) Ch. 65. 

Ac*, 1893. 

lunatic asylums shall be repaid within such period, not exceeding 
fifty years from the date of the advance, as the Treasury by order 
from time to time fix, and shall bear interest at the rate of three 
and a half per cent, per annum, or such other rate as may in the 
judgment of the Treasury be necessary in order to enable the loan 
to be made without loss to the Exchequer. 

Provided that in determining the time for the repayment of a 
loan, regard shall be had to the probable duration and continuing 
utility of the works in respect of which the loan is required. 

(2.) This section shall apply to loans for the purpose of lunatic 
asylums which have not, at the passing of this Act, come into 
course of repayment, although made in whole or in part before the 
passing of this Act. 

2. Whereas the Public Works Loan Commissioners, in the years 
eighteen hundred and sixty-seven and eighteen hundred and sixty- 
eight made advances amounting to fifty-nine thousand pounds to 
the Athenry and Ennis Junction Railway Company (herein-aftea 
referred to as the Athenry Company), towards constructing their 
railway, and the loan was made repayable with interest at five per 
cent, per annum by instalments in twenty years ; 

And whereas under the Waterford and Limerick Railway Act, 
1893, the undertaking of the Athenry Company has been sold to 
the Waterford and Limerick Railway Company, and the said loan 
has become a charge upon the purchase money for the undertaking; 

And whereas payments have been made to the Public Works 
Loan Commissioners in part discharge of the interest and instalments 
of principal, but the income of the undertaking has been insufficient 
to pay the whole of such interest and instalments; 

And whereas it is expedient that the rate of interest on the loan 
of fifty-nine thousand pounds should be reduced, therefore— 

‘The Public Works Loan Commissioners may accept in full 
discharge of the said loan of fifty-nine thousand pounds, such a sum 
as will, after allowing for the payments already made, discharge it 
with interest at the rate of four per cent, per annum, and the sum 
shall be calculated in the same manner as if the loan had borne 
interest at the rate of four instead of five per cent, per annum, and 
as if the payments already made had been applied first in payment 
of interest at such reduced rate, and the balance in reduction of the 
principal, and all necessary corrections in the books of the Public 
Works Loan Commissioners shall be made accordingly. The interest 
so remitted as aforesaid shall be deemed to be a free grant by 
Parliament.

Ch. 71. 


353 


CHAPTER 71. 

An Act for codifying the Law relating to the Sale of 
Goods. [20th February 1894.] 

X>E it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and 
14 witli the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and 
Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, 
and by the authority of the same, as follows: 

PART I. 

Formation of the Contract. 

Contract of Sale. 

1. —(1.) A contract of sale of goods is a contract whereby the Sale and 
seller transfers or agrees to transfer the property in goods to the agreement to 
buyer for a money consideration, called the price. There may be a 8cl1 * 
contract of sale between one part owner and another. 

(2.) A contract of sale may be absolute or conditional. 

(3.) Where under a contract of sale the property in the goods is 
transferred from the seller to the buyer the contract is called a 
sale ; but where the transfer of the property in the goods is to 
take place at a future time or subject to some condition thereafter 
to be fulfilled the contract is called an agreement to sell. 

(4.) An agreement to sell becomes a sale when the time elapses 
or the conditions are fulfilled subject to which the property in the 
goods is to be transferred. 

2. Capacity to buy and sell is regulated by the general law Capacity to 
concerning capacity to contract, and to transfer and acquire W an(l »oll- 
property. 

Provided that where necessaries are sold and delivered to an 
infant, or minor, or to a person who by reason of mental incapacity 
or drunkenness is incompetent to contract, he must pay a 
reasonable price therefor. 

Necessaries in this section mean goods suitable to the condition 
in life of such infant or minor or other person, and to his actual 
requirements at the time of the sale and delivery. 

Formalities of the Contract. 

3. Subject to the provisions of this Act and of any statute in Contract of 
that behalf, a contract of sale may be made in writing (either with sale, how 
or without seal), or by word of mouth, or partly in writing and made * 
partly by word of mouth, or may be implied from the conduct of 

the parties. 

Provided that nothing in this section shall affect the law relating 
to corporations. 

4. —(1.) A contract for the sale of any goods of the value of ten Contract of 
pounds or upwards shall not be enforceable by action unless the 

buyer shall accept part of the goods so sold, and actually receive upwards, 
the same, or give something in earnest to bind the contract, or in 
part payment, or unless some note or memorandum iq^jipljting of

the contract be made and signed by the party to be charged or his 
agent in that behalf. 

(2.) The provisions of this section apply to every such contract, 
notwithstanding that the goods may be intended to be delivered at 
some future time, or may not at the time of such contract be 
actually made, procured, or provided, or fit or ready for delivery, 
or some act may be requisite for the making or completing thereof, 
or rendering the same fit for delivery. 

(3.) There is an acceptance of goods within the meaning of this 
section when the buyer does any act in relation to the goods which 
recognises a pre-existing contract of sale whether there be an 
acceptance in performance of the contract or not. 

(4.) The provisions of this section do not apply to Scotland. 

Subject matter of Contract . 

5. —(1.) The goods which form the subject of a contract of sale 
may be either existing goods, owned or possessed by the seller, or 
goods to be manufactured or acquired by the seller after the making 
of the contract of sale, in this Act called “ future goods/' 

(2.) There may be a contract for the sale of goods, the acquisition 
of which by the seller depends upon a contingency which may or 
may not happen. 

(3.) Where by a contract of sale the seller purports to effect a 
present sale of future goods, the contract operates as an agreement 
to sell the goods. 

6 . Where there is a contract for the sale of specific goods, and 
the goods without the knowledge of the seller have perished at the 
time when the contract is made, the contract is void. 

7. Where there is an agreement to sell specific goods, and subse¬ 
quently the goods, without any fault on the part of the seller or 
buyer, perish before the risk passes to the buyer, the agreement is 
thereby avoided. 


The Price . 

8 . —(1.) The price in a contract of sale may be fixed by the 
contract, or may be left to be fixed in manner thereby agreed, or 
may be determined by the course of dealing between the parties. 

(2.) Where the price is not determined in accordance with the 
foregoing provisions the buyer must pay a reasonable price. What 
is a reasonable price is a question of fact dependent on the circum¬ 
stances of each particular case. 

9. —(1.) Where there is an agreement to sell goods on the terms 
that the price is to be fixed by the valuation of a third party, and 
such third party cannot or does not make such valuation, the 
agreement is avoided; provided that if the goods or any part 
thereof have been delivered to and appropriated by the buyer he 
must pay a reasonable price therefor. 

(2.) Where such third party is prevented from making the 
valuation by the fault of the seller or buyer, the party not in 



Ch. 71. 


3o5 


1893. Sale of Goods Act, 1893. 

fault may maintain an action for damages against the party in 
fault. 


Conditions and Warranties. 

10 .— (1.) Unless a different intention appears from the terms stipulations as 
of the contract, stipulations as to time of payment are not deemed to time, 
to be of the essence of a contract of sale. Whether any other 
stipulation as to time is of the essence of the contract or not 
depends on the terms of the contract. 

(2.) In a contract of sale “ month ” means prima facie calendar 
month. 

1L— (1.) In England or Ireland— 

(a.) Where a contract of sale is subject to any condition to be wiien con- 
fulfilled by the seller, the buyer may waive the condition, or f^Tdas* 1 
may elect to treat the breach of such condition as a breach warranty” 
of warranty, and not as a ground for treating the contract as 
repudiated. 

(b.) Whether a stipulation in a contract of sale is a condition, 
the breach of which may give rise to a right to treat the 
contract as repudiated, or a warranty, the breach of which 
may give rise to a claim for damages but not to a right to 
reject the goods and treat the contract as repudiated, depends 
in each case on the construction of the contract. A stipulation 
may be a condition, though called a warranty in the contract: 

(c.) Where a contract of sale is not severable, and the buyer 
has accepted the goods, or part thereof, or where the contract 
is for specific goods, the property in which has passed to the 
buyer, the breach of any condition to be fulfilled by the seller 
can only be treated as a breach of warranty, and not as a 
ground for rejecting the goods and treating the contract as 
repudiated, unless there be a term of the contract, express or 
implied, to that effect. 

(2.) In Scotland, failure by the seller to perform any material 
part of a contract of sale is a breach of contract, which entitles the 
buyer either within a reasonable time after delivery to reject the 
goods and treat the contract as repudiated, or to retain the goods 
and treat the failure to perform such material part as a breach 
which may give rise to a claim for compensation or damages. 

(3.) Nothing in this section shall affect the case of any condition 
or warranty, fulfilment of which is excused by law by reason of 
impossibility or otherwise. 

12. In a contract of sale, unless the circumstances of the contract Implied under- 
are such as to show a different intention, there is— ^mg Rs to 

* tlllCj &ۥ 

(1.) An implied condition on the part of the seller that in the 
case of a sale he has a right to sell the goods, and that in 
the case of an agreement to sell he will have a right to sell 
the goods at the time when the property is to pass : 

(2.) An implied warranty that the buyer shall have and enjoy 
qniet possession of the goods:

56 & 57 Vicr. 


(3.) An implied warranty that the goods shall be free from any 
charge or encumbrance in favour of any third party, not 
declared or known to the buyer before or at the time when 
the contract is made. 


Sale by 
description. 


Implied con¬ 
ditions as io 
quality or 
tit ness. 


13* Where there is a contract for the sale of goods by descrip¬ 
tion, there is an implied condition that the goods shall correspond 
with the description; and if the sale be by sample, as well as 
by description, it is not sufficient that the bulk of the goods 
corresponds with the sample if the goods do not also correspond 
with the description. 

14. Subject to the provisions of this Act and of any statute in 
that behalf, there is no implied warranty or condition as to the 
quality or fitness for any particular purpose of goods supplied under 
a contract of sale, except as follows :— 

(1.) Where the buyer, expressly or by implication, makes known

goods or for the seller to send them to the buyer is a question 
depending in each case on the contract, express or implied, between 
the parties. Apart from any such contract, express or implied, the 
place of delivery is the seller’s place of business, if he have one, and 
if not, his residence: Provided that, if the contract be for the sale 
of specific goods, which to the knowledge of the parties when the 
contract is made are in some other place, then that place is the 
place of delivery. 

(2.) Where under the contract of sale the seller is bound to send 
the goods to the buyer, but no time for sending them is fixed, the 
seller is bound to send them within a reasonable time.

must pay for them at the contract rate.

ments, or the buyer neglects or refuses to take delivery of or pay 
for one or more instalments, it is a question in each case depending 
on the terms of the contract and the circumstances of the case, 
whether the breach of contract is a repudiation of the whole con¬ 
tract or whether it is a severable breach giving rise to a claim 
for compensation but not to a right to treat the whole contract 
as repudiated.

authorised or required to send the goods to the buyer, delivery of carrier, 
the goods to a carrier, whether named by the buyer or not, for the 
purpose of transmission to the buyer is prima facie deemed to be 

a delivery of the goods to the buyer. 

(2.) Unless otherwise authorised by the buyer, the seller must 
make such contract with the carrier on behalf of the buyer as may 
be reasonable having regard to the nature of the goods and the 
other circumstances of the case. If the seller omit so to do, and 
the goods are lost or damaged in course of transit, the buyer may 
decline to treat the delivery to the carrier as a delivery to himself, 
or may hold the seller responsible in damages. 

(3.) Unless otherwise agreed, where goods are sent by the seller 
to the buyer by a route involving sea transit, under circumstances 
in which it is usual to insure, the seller must give such notice to 
the buyer as may enable him to insure them during their sea 
transit, and, if the seller fails to do so, the goods shall be deemed 
to be at his risk during such sea transit.

with the contract. 

(2.) Unless otherwise agreed, when the seller tenders delivery of 
goods to the buyer, he is bound, on request, to afford the buyer a 
reasonable opportunity of examining the goods for the purpose of 
ascertaining whether they are in conformity with the contract. 

35. The buyer is deemed to have accepted the goods when he 
intimates to the seller that he has accepted them, or when the goods 
have been delivered to him, and he does any act in relation to them 
which is inconsistent with the ownership of the seller, or when 
after the lapse of a reasonable time, he retains the goods without 
intimating to the seller that he has rejected them. 

36. Unless otherwise agreed, where goods are delivered to the 
buyer, and he refuses to accept them, having the right so to do, he 
is not bound to return them to the seller, but it is sufficient if he 
intimates to the seller that he refuses to accept them. 

37. When the seller is ready and willing to deliver the goods, 
and requests the buyer to take delivery, and the buyer does not 
within a reasonable time after such request take delivery of the 
goods, he is liable to the seller for any loss occasioned by his neglect 
or refusal to take delivery, and also for a reasonable charge for the 
care and custody of the goods. Provided that nothing in this

refusal of the buyer to take delivery amounts to a repudiation of
