Shipping - Commencement of lay days - Notice of readiness to load - Invalid notice - Owners claiming demurrage - Charterers claiming despatch - Whether laytime commencing when no valid notice of readiness served.
Where a charterer stipulated that laytime was to begin following the giving of notice of readiness, time would not begin to run unless and until a valid notice of readiness had been given, irrespective of whether the owner had been prevented from issuing a valid notice by the charterer's breach. Moreover, where the breach of a sub-charter caused a breach of the head charter, the sub-charterer would only be liable to indemnify the head charterer if the liability was such as to be within the reasonable contemplation of the sub-charterer at the time it entered into the contract.
