New trial motion - Motor car insurance accident policy -Particulars in proposal - Warranty - Agency.

Where a proposal in writing for the insurance against accident of a motor char-a-banc was made and signed with a warranty that the statements and particulars therein contained were true, and where reference therein was made to a previous accident in 1920, and a statement that damage to cattle belonging to third parties was measured at £80, but it was not stated that there had been any damage to the car. It was proved at the trial that a sum of £45 had been paid for injury to the car, as well as a sum of £70 for injury to cattle. Held, that this was a wilful misstatement invalidating the policy. Semble, it is the duty of a proposer for an accident policy to state the accidents he has had in driving, whether he was driving on his own account or on behalf of other persons.
