Unformatted text preview: t but P refused to make use of them as they
reminded her of bathing in her own bathroom at home. Amidst all the anxiety and
frustration, P started to develop a migraine and soon became mentally anguished.
Furthermore, P is extremely sensitive to cold weather and, as a result, she fell violently ill
not long after. A doctor had to be specially called in to treat her, for which she had to
incur an additional $1,000 (for consultation and medication). 4 LGST101 To make matters worse, P was informed on her last night at the resort that DDA had

“Their Lordships cite these judgments in other common law jurisdictions not to

What are the two main schools of thought in “this branch of the law” and which, in your
