Clause 32 - Customer information
Crime (International Co-operation) Bill [Lords]
Mr Nick Hawkins (Surrey Heath, Conservative)
My hon. Friend is right. He, like me, has seen the consequences and the amount of work that the requests used to cause, even under existing law. I was on the main compliance board and was group legal adviser for the last PLC for which I worked, so I saw at particularly close quarters the implications of checking the work so that any response requested by Government could be provided fully and accurately.
