Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 67 - Civil asset recovery in cases of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: I meant, in summary, the economic effect. The impact is that agencies have much greater latitude to bring cases against bad people in American courts without fear of what it will do to their enforcement budget. That is exactly where we need our enforcement agencies to be. If we are going to strengthen their hand, to really effectively police the problem and to respect what the Government need...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 67 - Civil asset recovery in cases of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: The Minister has had quite an education since becoming a Minister and joining the ranks of the Government, because, of course, it was in the Foreign Affairs Committee report on tackling illicit finance in which he authored a number of quite strong words about the need to reform and improve the regime for unexplained wealth orders, which are an important legal innovation. They are looked up to...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 66 - Default supervisory authority for independent legal professionals (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. In a way, new clause 66 builds on the debate we have just had, but it takes the proposed reform in a slightly different direction.

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 66 - Default supervisory authority for independent legal professionals (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: The Minister made the case for the new clause rather well. I am grateful for his confession that significant numbers of businesses are in effect not covered by a default supervisor. If anything, he will have alarmed those listening from the other place who will, no doubt, want to pick up the new clause and build on it, especially given the Minister’s intention—sotto voce, I think—to try...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 67 - Civil asset recovery in cases of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: The new clause would cap legal costs where the Government try to bring unexplained wealth orders into effect. That point was picked up by the Foreign Affairs Committee when it was ably chaired by the Minister for Security. It also featured heavily in the economic crime manifesto which the other Minister helped launch in Westminster Abbey not too long ago, in the heady days of summer, when he...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 64 - Disclosure of information in the public interest likely to be relevant to the investigation of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: I am grateful for the chance to intervene, because I sense that the Minister has almost reached the conclusion of his remarks without giving the Committee the date on which a more comprehensive proposal, which is what he argues for, will be presented to the House. We know that the Ministry of Justice has already conducted its consultation, and that the consultation responses have been...

Public Bill Committee: Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill: New Clause 64 - Disclosure of information in the public interest likely to be relevant to the investigation of economic crime (24 Nov 2022)

Liam Byrne: The truth is that people will be appalled by this debate. We gathered an enormous number of campaign groups and journalists together in the House on Tuesday evening, at a function that I had the privilege to co-sponsor with the right hon. Member for Haltemprice and Howden. The kinetic energy behind reform is significant. The law will change—we will get there—but the question is whether...
