National Fraud Reporting Centre

Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

To ask the Solicitor-General (1) when she expects the proposed national fraud reporting centre to become operational; (167110)

(2) what the (a) establishment and (b) annual running costs of the proposed national fraud reporting centre are expected to be.

The comprehensive spending review announced new investment of over £28 million from HM Government for 2008 to 2011 in the UK's fight against fraud. Part of this new investment has been earmarked for the establishment of the national fraud reporting centre, which is expected to become operational early in 2009.

Establishment and running costs remain confidential at present under the terms of HM Treasury's settlement letter and due to the commercially sensitive nature of the detailed development work that is now under way towards making the national fraud reporting centre a reality.
