Can I take it that the Minister is not implying that there have not been problems in the past, particularly with certain overseas territories? He referred specifically to the Channel Islands and elsewhere, but  there have been problems. For example, a previous Government had to intervene with regard to the Turks and Caicos Islands. Certainly, the United States has had concerns about some British overseas territories being used for money laundering and other unsavoury activities in the past.
