In an early case, Tweddle vs. Atkinson, it was found that a son, because he had ignored his father-in-law`s promise to his father to pay the son £200, could not keep the promise.  In light of the principle that compliance with an obligation must reflect the person who has a legitimate interest in honouring it, a 1996 report of the Legal Commission entitled «Privity of Contract: Contracts for the Benefit of Third Parties» recommended that, although the courts have the freedom to develop the common law, however, some of the most egregious injustices should be eliminated.  This led to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999. Under section 1, a third party may enforce an agreement if it purports to grant a benefit to the third party, either individually or as a member as a class, and there is no explicit provision that the person did not intend to enforce it.  In this regard, the party who asserts that enforcement was not provided for by a third party is cumbersome.  A third party has the same remedies as a person who has been initiated into an agreement and may impose both positive benefits and limitations of liability, such as. B an exclusion clause.  The rights of a third party may be terminated or withdrawn without his or her consent only if it is reasonably foreseeable that the third party would avail himself or herself of them.  Since contracts relate to voluntary obligations, the courts apply a number of safeguards to ensure that only those who give informed and genuine consent are legally bound. . . .
