HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 cc322-3W
Mr. Warren

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement about the terms and conditions of the reciprocal judgments agreement being negotiated between Her Majesty's Government and the Government of the United States of America, which will enable mutual acceptance of United Kingdom and United States of America federal and state judgments.

Mr. Judd

A text of a draft convention between the United Kingdom and the United States of America as settled by officials, providing for the reciprocal recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil matters, was initialled on 26th October 1976. This text, which has been published as Cmnd. 6771, is currently under consideration by the Governments of both countries and does not necessarily represent the final text of the convention.
