Dyson Ltd v Qualtex (Uk) Ltd: CA 8 Mar 2006

Jacob LJ: In the context of construing an international treaty by reference to the travaux preparatoires to find a definite legal intention Lord Steyn said: ‘Only a bull’s-eye counts’ (Effort Shipping v Linden Management [1988] AC 605 at 625). Much the same goes for trying to ascertain such an intention from a White Paper which precedes legislation.
