The Court of Appeal applied the "material increase of risk" test, first espoused in McGhee v National Coal Board. Gordon, WE and Griffith, WH Stress Test Model Management Principles. Exposure risks can increase for workers interacting with individuals with higher risks of contracting COVID-19 and for workers who have exposure to other sources of the virus in the course of their job duties. You can say that using bleach results in a 50% increase in relative risk. G Turton ((2009) Med L Rev 140) regards the material contribution concept as involving application of the but-for test and rightly argues that there is a need for greater clarity in the use of causal concepts; S Green ((2009) 125 LQR 44) regards the case as applying the material contribution test, and argues that this involves requiring but-for causation to be established in respect of ‘part of the ultimate injury’ (a view the present author does not share for the reasons set out in this paper); M Stauch ([2009] CLJ 27) regards the case as involving a departure from the but-for test and rightly criticises such an extension to the law. 9 Cf Glanville Williams's unqualified statement in 1951: ‘If a fact is not the scientific cause of an event, it cannot be the proximate cause’: Joint Torts and Contributory Negligence (London: Stevens & Sons Ltd, 1951) p 240.

In his analysis of McGhee (n 11 above), Lord Hope contrasts the orthodox test, for him illustrated by Bonnington Castings, that the claimant must show that the defendant's negligence was a necessary, albeit not the sole cause of the damage (at 596–597), with the novel principle established by McGhee that in some cases it is sufficient to show that the defendant's negligence materially increased the risk of harm (at 599–600). 57 See Lord Bingham in Fairchild at paras [21] and [35].

This is particularly likely when there are several misstatements that are individually immaterial, but which are material when aggregated. Typically the most fruitful 10% to 15% of the test scenarios uncover 75% to 90% of the significant problems (Petschenik).

Cost of sales, expenses and trade payables may not be complete or accurate. c. As a product of further study of the business and industry and application of analytical procedures. 85 If Detection risk is high, meaning the risk is high you don't find material misstatements, then the amount of substantive testing is lower. 39 Applying the principle subsequently recognised in Jobling v Associated Dairies[1982] AC 794.

Render date: 2020-12-17T22:17:20.282Z Total loading time: 0.311 Inherent risk and control risk are directly related to the extent of planned tests of details of balances; that is, as inherent risk and/or control risk increase, the extent of planned tests of details of balances also increases. The Court found that since the hospital breached its duty and thus increased the risk of harm, and that the plaintiff's injury fell within the ambit of that risk, the hospital was liable despite the fact the plaintiff had not proved the hospital's negligence had caused his injury. }. 65 This reflects the basic point that ‘In tort causal questions are usually relevant to both the existence of liability and to its extent’: Hart and Honoré, above n 7, p 85.
