The Hague Conference on Private International Law had tried many decades ago, to create an International Bankruptcy Convention. It had been discussed in the Conference of 1904 and at the Fifth Session of the Hague Conference 1925 it was one of the issues to discuss. It was the first time the British government sent a delegation to The Hague to discuss the possibility of a diplomatic convention on uniform rules of private international law.
