Blackpool Aero Club v Blackpool Borough Council [1990]


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


  • Was there an obligation to consider all conforming tenders


  • Yes


  • 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
