Ambassador W. Armstrong (New Zealand)
A Adoption of the report (1996) of the Council
5. The representative of Australia said that, if she would be in a position tomorrow to confirm her delegation's readiness to join other delegations in agreeing to adopt the report, such would be on the understanding that there was no language in paragraph 34 which, in whatever way, committed any delegation to work being carried out beyond the scope which was outlined in the relevant paragraphs relating to the built-in agenda of the TRIPS Agreement.
