Corporate Manslaughter

Asked if the Foreign Secretary had gone beyond his brief in writing to the Deputy Prime Minister in an attempt to block new legislation on corporate manslaughter, as reported in today’s Guardian, the PMS said that it wasn’t our policy to comment on leaked documents. Asked if the Government remained committed to a draft Bill on the issue, the PMS said that it would be inappropriate to comment on the contents of the forthcoming Queen’s Speech. Put to her that she had commented in detail on the Gambling Bill, the PMS pointed out that the Gambling Bill had been included in last year’s Queen’s Speech.
