On a related issue, after the publication of the Russia report the Prime Minister claimed

“tackling illicit finance and driving dirty money and money launderers out of the UK is a priority.”

His warnings to Mr Putin of late would surely have carried more bite if he had used the 18 months since the publication of the Russia report to legislate for an economic crime Act to stop the flow of dirty money from Russia. Why has he not prioritised this issue of national security?
