Fisher v Bell

[1961] 1 QB 394

Case summary last updated at 03/01/2020 14:05 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Fisher v Bell

 D advertised an illegal flick-knife in his shop window but couldn’t be sued for an “offer to sell” an offensive weapon contrary to a statute, because it was merely an invitation to treat. Lord Parker conceded that this seemed absurd but said that it was a problem for parliament to correct.
