Ambassador István Major (Hungary)
C.iv.d Legislation on enforcement
27. The Chairperson recalled that, at the Council's last meeting, the representative of the European Communities had informed the Council that his delegation had submitted an additional question to the United States in the context of this part of the review exercise. This question had been circulated in document IP/C/W/93. The Secretariat had not yet received an answer to this question. Moreover, the Secretariat had also informed him that there were still quite some answers outstanding to the questions posed at the meeting of November 1997 when the Council had undertaken the review of legislation on enforcement. He suggested that the Council remind delegations which still had to submit outstanding material that these should have been submitted by the end of January 1998 and urge those delegations to provide the responses without delay. The Council should revert to this matter at its next meeting.
