    Yup, agree with that. Very damaging legislation, brought about in the worst possible circumstances to legislate (a weak coalition, virtue signalling).

    Transfer of liability is completely independent of the client's own liability. Take two scenarios, both quite likely, by way of example. One, the PSC is liquidated (OK, the contract could attempt to...

    No. You want the full review with working practices. QDOS are fully aware of the situation at GSK, but there's no harm in poking them about that either and getting their view on risk.

    Yes, I mean that is the actual test in case law. A right of substitution that is not unreasonably fettered. Obviously, based on the hypothetical contract, looking through any contract word collage.
