Fisher v Bell [1961]


  • A flick knife which was illegal to sell was displayed in a shop window with a price tag next to it


  • Could this be illegal, when was a contract of sale made in a shop?


  • Not illegal


  • A product displayed in a shop is an invitation to treat only and therefore has no contractual significance in the shopping process
