Order 39 of the Coalition Provisional Authority is the product of consultations between the British Government and the Coalition Provisional Authority, relevant departments of the US Administration, the UN Secretary-General's Representative, the international financial institutions and the Iraqi Governing Council. Such consultations, called for under the terms of UNSCR 1483, are a necessary and normal part of the preparation of legislation by the coalition. jenny
