The author considers the recent case of Glasgow City Council v First Glasgow (No 1) Ltd 2020 S.L.T. 75 in which the question arose as to whether a reference giver owed a duty of care-not to the subject or recipient of the reference-but rather to a third party. As will be seen, that question, which presented the court with a novel situation, would be answered in the negative.
