This appeal from Trinidad & Tobago before the Privy Council concerned two cases involving the suspension of licences for retail marketing of petrol.

The appellants claimed damages for loss they have suffered as a result of the suspension and what they say amounted in substance to an unlawful revocation of the licences.
