Henry and Jill are partners in a small business. The partnership operates a hardware and gardening supplies store,

and trades under the name 'Henry's Hardware', although Jill also takes a full role in the business. Discuss whether the members of the firm are liable for the acts of the individual partner. While working late one night, Henry uses a forklift to transfer some patio tiles onto a truck for delivery to a customer. While driving the forklift at high speed through the customer car park, Henry fails to keep a proper look out and crashes into a parked car, causing damage to the car. Henry also had some tiles on the forklift, which he was planning to take home for his own use. Is the partnership liable for the damage to the car?
