THE MASTER OF THE ROLLS: D. & C. Builders Ltd are a little company. “D” stands for Donaldson, a decorator, “C” for Casey, a plumber. They are jobbing builders. The defendant has a shop where he sells builders’ materials.

In the spring of 1964 the defendant employed the plaintiffs to do work at his premises, 218. Brick Lane. The plaintiffs did the work and rendered accounts in May and June, which came to £746 13s. 1d. altogether. The defendant paid £250 on account. In addition the plaintiffs made an allowance of £14 off the bill. So in July, 1964, there was owing to the plaintiffs the sum of £482 13s. 1d. At this stage there was no dispute as to the work done. But the defendant did not pay.
