Blackpool Aero Club v Blackpool Borough Council [1990]

Facts

  • The claimants submitted a tender for a pleasure flights contract
  • The defendants believed, erroneously, that the tender had arrived later, so did not qualify

Issue

  • Was there an obligation to consider all conforming tenders

Decision

  • Yes

Reasoning

  • Although there was no obligation to accept a specific tender, unless otherwise specified, a call for tenders does create a collateral contract for the caller to consider all conforming tenders
