HC Deb 26 March 1990 vol 170 c26W
Mr. Sedgemore

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he has any plans to bring forward legislation to amend the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 so as to render unlawful contracts in which a writer has to waive his or her moral rights.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

I have no such plans, since I believe that it is important to preserve freedom of contract in dealings involving copyright.
