I am sure that we are all extremely pleased to hear Her Majesty’s loyal Opposition defending companies that could end up under the cosh of the Bill’s provisions. Whether it is facilitation payments, or that a company’s efforts to promote its cause in some exotic place are misconstrued—
I have not got to my point yet. I was particularly taken with the Under-Secretary’s comment that she had consulted the CBI. Obviously, we are all gratified that there is such a doughty defender of civil and human rights in this country, never mind elsewhere. During her consultations, did she consult SOCA to determine its view on the Bill, and especially on clause 6?
A terrible shame!
