§ 18 Mr. Clinton Davis
, pursuant to his reply [Official Report,th January 1977], gave the following information:
I have no precise information on any such provisions in Polish laws and regulations. But in Poland, as in other East European countries, the practice of selling on a cif basis and buying fob is widespread. This effectively ensures control of the means by which the goods are transported.
