HC Deb 19 July 1977 vol 935 c468W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether, in the light of the EEC draft directive on commercial agents he is satisfied with the degree of legal protection afforded to commercial travellers in terms of their contractual relations with their principals.

Mr. Meacher

I am still considering the proposed contents of the draft directive, which concerns relations between self-employed commercial agents and their principals rather than employees working as commercial travellers.
