In Legal & General Assurance Ltd v Kirk  IRLR 124 CA, the Court of Appeal held that a case based on negligent misstatement must involve a statement, such as a reference, to a third party. It ruled that the duty to take reasonable care in preparing references does not extend to cover a situation in which no negligent reference has in fact been given.
