Abstract

The Suez incident continues to provide materials for the illumination of the doctrine of frustration. In Sciete Franco Tunisienne D'Armement v. Sidermar S.P.A. Pearson J. had to consider its effect upon a charterparty dated October 18, 1956, by which the plaintiff's ship, the Massalia, was chartered to proceed "with all convenient speed" to Masulipatha and there load a cargo of iron ore to be carried with "with all convenient speed" to Genoa.
