Officials: Disclosure

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the proposed EU development of an obligation on certain categories of officials with regard to the reporting of bribery and the disclosure of assets and business interests; and what its legal base is. (108067)

I have been asked to reply.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 14 December 2006, Official Report, column 1424W, on the effect of Commission Directives 2005/60/EC and 2006/70/EC.

The Treaty base for 2005/60/EC is Article 47(2), first and third sentences, and Article 95.
