The Scottish Law Commission have published a consultative document on reform of the rules of interpretation of contracts. This follows the publication of the Draft Common Frame of Reference in 2009.This sets out a contemporary statement of contract law, based on comparative research from across the European Union. The SLC report provides an interesting and detailed report on the existing approach to interpretation in Scotland and provides comparison with England and some Common Law countries. It also proposes a number of changes. More details can be found at:
