Serious Fraud Office: Working Conditions

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

To ask the Solicitor-General what assessment she has made of the findings in the recent final report on the Serious Fraud Office on its working culture; and if she will make a statement. (216033)

The Attorney-General and I are aware that the new Director of the Serious Fraud Office has taken account of Jessica de Grazia’s findings and his own assessment since arrival and that he is taking forward a programme of change within the SFO, including of communication and ways of working. This is a welcome approach. In this he will be building on the good work of very many staff in the SFO, which was also acknowledged by Jessica de Grazia.
