On the 28 August 2010, the Ministry of Justice published a Call for Evidence on the European Commission's Green Paper on policy options for progress towards a European contract law to assist with the Government's response to the Green Paper. The Government is seeking views on the following:

whether the current regulation of contract law and any diversions of more that National level present problems, and if so, how significant those problems are; the relative advantages and disadvantages of each of the options and sub-options identified in the Green Paper; whether any future work should cover business to business contracts; whether any solution should attempt to regulate both cross-border and domestic contract or approach them separately.
