Page One Records v Britton [1968] 1 WLR 157

Facts:

D was pop group and P was their manager. D wanted to sign with someone else. D says manager breached the contract. P sought injunction to restrain D from signing with anyone else until trial after

Ratio:

An injunction will not be granted when it would force someone to continue to employ someone who they have lost confidence in.
You can only get specific performance if it is available to both sides.
Can only enforce negative covenant if it wont stop person from livelihood.

Analysis:

Defendant cant get specific performance to compel the manager to work for them – Therefore specific performance has to be available to both sides. Granting the injunction would be same as specific performance

Holding:

Injunction not granted
