This instalment of recent English cases covers quite a wide spectrum and includes inter alia an application of the rules of natural justice; two very interesting cases on provocation and self-defence in criminal law; contempt of court; damages for mental stress; priviliged documents and public interest and liability for negligence. All appear to have some bearing on the application of our own law, should similar facts present themselves.
