Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill — New Clause 5 — Implementation of other International Agreements on Private Law via Secondary Legislation — 6 Oct 2020 at 16:15

The majority of MPs voted to empower ministers to implement international agreements on private international law without requiring an Act of Parliament.

MPs were considering the Private International Law (Implementation of Agreements) Bill.[1]

The Bill implements the Hague Conventions of 1996 on Jurisdiction, Applicable Law, Recognition, Enforcement and Co-operation in respect of Parental Responsibility and Measures for the Protection of Children, of 2005 on Choice of Court Agreements and of 2007 on the International Recovery of Child Support and other Forms of Family Maintenance.

The new clause supported by a majority of MPs in this vote provides for the implementation of other international agreements on private international law in future via secondary legislation. Under the new clause agreements could be implemented by ministers rather than requiring an Act of Parliament.

Private law refers to the law relating to disputes between bodies other than states. Private international law deals with the variation between countries in the laws applicable to such disputes.

The new clause supported my a majority of MPs in this vote was accompanied by the following explanatory statement from its proposer:

  • This new clause contains a power to implement international agreements relating to private international law.

The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That the clause be read a Second time.
