HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c87W
Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

asked the President of the Board of Trade what consideration he has given to the advantages to be obtained for United Kingdom traders by acceding to the Conventions relating to the Uniform Laws on International Sale of Goods and the Formation of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods which were drawn up at a diplomatic conference held at The Hague in April, 1964 and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jay

The United Kingdom took a prominent part in the drafting of the Uniform Laws and has signed the Conventions. We intend to introduce legislation at the earliest opportunity to enable the United Kingdom to ratify both Conventions.
