The Council of the European Union (Justice and Home Affairs) will hold their 2768th meeting on Monday 4th – Tuesday 5th December 2006. Item 4 on the agenda is:
Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the law applicable to contractual obligations (Rome I) (debate on certain issues) (LA) (public deliberation)
Thanks to the wonder of modern technology, that public deliberation should be available to watch as a live webcast on the Finnish Presidency’s website. You will need to download and install RealPlayer, if you don’t already have it. The website contains archives of the webcasts, so those that are busy on 4th – 5th December will be able to watch it after the event; we will link to the specific webcast when it becomes available.
Update: it seems as though the version of the agenda on the Finnish Presidency’s website may now be a little out of date. The press office at the Council of the European Union have produced a a new version of the agenda today (1st December 2006), and it makes no mention of Rome I. We will keep you informed of further developments.
