a contract, for example for the agreed price of goods or services under sale of goods legislation. 1

(d) Action for a reasonable price for goods sold, under sale of goods legislation, where the price is not fi xed by the contract. 2

(e) Action on a quantum meruit. (f) Action for specifi c performance. (g) Action for an injunction to restrain breach of a negative term in a contract.
