Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Clause 39 - Cartel offence (10 Jul 2012)

Chi Onwurah: ...that the offence should be defined as a dishonest participation in an agreement. Frazer gives some background on the perceived advantages to the dishonesty element of the offence, saying: “The cartel offence is much broader than the classic price-fixing cartel, incorporating a broad range of anti-competitive arrangements such as limiting supply or production, market-sharing, customer...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill: Clause 179 - Cartel offence (23 Apr 2002)

Miss Melanie Johnson: The amendment would defer the coming into force of the cartel offence until three years after the proposals for the modernisation of European Commission law are finalised and brought into force. We do not know when those proposals will be completed and brought into force, and in the meantime there is no reason to delay the introduction of the cartel criminal offence against the individual....

Written Answers — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Construction: Cartels (13 May 2008)

Gareth Thomas: the last five years, however three individuals have recently been charged and are awaiting a court hearing in respect of a cartel involving marine hoses and ancillary equipment. As the criminal cartel offence applies only to individuals, no company has been prosecuted. However, 13 decisions in civil proceedings have been made against 166 companies in relation to breaches of the Chapter...

Enterprise Bill (15 Oct 2002)

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: ...for intrusive surveillance under the RIPA to be authorised, its use must be proportionate to what is sought to be achieved and it must meet one of three criteria. The one that will apply for the cartel offence is that the intrusive surveillance is necessary, "for the purpose of preventing or detecting serious crime". It must be the case that the information could not reasonably be obtained...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill: Clause 184 - Powers when conducting an investigation (23 Apr 2002)

Nigel Waterson: ...for that intervention, but I cannot be as helpful as I would wish in response as I do not know on what basis the company was said to be unfit to trade. We must be careful about allowing the cartel offence, which will be a serious offence with major criminal sanctions attached, to be misused to attack a company for which other remedies are already available. It may be that the company is...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (26 Feb 2013)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: My Lords, there is wide agreement in both Houses that having to prove “dishonesty” makes the criminal cartel offence unnecessarily hard to prosecute, so it is right that Clause 41 removes the dishonesty requirement. However, in the Government’s view one cannot simply remove that requirement and leave the offence otherwise unchanged. Rather, we have had to think through the implications....

Enterprise Bill (22 Jul 2002)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: The purpose of the amendment is to ensure that the no-action leniency regime for individuals under the cartel offence can operate effectively with the leniency regime for companies under the civil infringement of Article 81/Chapter 1. It is policy in the European Community and in the United Kingdom to encourage all those involved in cartels to provide information on a cartel under amnesty...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill: Clause 182 - Extradition (23 Apr 2002)

Miss Melanie Johnson: The amendment would remove the possibility of extradition for conspiracy or attempt to commit a cartel offence. The inchoate offences of attempt or conspiracy to commit an offence apply automatically by virtue of the Criminal Attempts Act 1981 and the Criminal Law Act 1977. The UK law recognises that conspiring to commit a crime and an attempt to commit a crime are serious and should not be...

Enterprise Bill (21 Oct 2002)

Lord Kingsland: ...the, "Power to make consequential amendments etc.", under the Bill. The power is granted under Clause 272. We seek to exclude Part 6 of the Bill from the scope of the clause. Part 6 deals with the cartel offence; that is the offence which has criminal consequences. We believe it inappropriate for a power such as that contained in Clause 272 to affect criminal provisions. I beg to move.

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Examination of Witnesses (21 Jun 2012) removing dishonesty and introducing the publication offences. The case for removing dishonesty has not yet been made out, so it is premature to do so. The fact that no contested cases under the cartel offence have actually been put before a jury seems to render rather hollow the argument that we need to change the law. Perhaps what we need to do is to find the right sort of cases to...

Relationship, Drug and Alcohol Education (Curriculum): Clause 40 — Cartel Offence (17 Oct 2012)

Amendments made: 18, page 37, line 20, at end insert— ‘(6) After section 188A (as inserted by subsection (5) above) insert— “188B Defences to commission of cartel offence (1) In a case where the arrangements would (operating as the parties intend) affect the supply in the United Kingdom of a product or service, it is a defence for an individual charged with an offence under...

Enterprise Bill (18 Jul 2002)

Lord Sharman: ...going through a resourcing exercise of equipping the OFT with the necessary skills already present in the Serious Fraud Office, it would be better for responsibility for the criminal aspects of the cartel offence to be investigated exclusively by the Serious Fraud Office. That would leave the OFT with the responsibility solely for the enforcement of civil remedies. I beg to move.

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Jun 2012)

Katja Hall: Yes. On this whole issue around the cartel offence and removing dishonesty, I think we understand the intention behind the proposal. We accept that at the moment it is a high hurdle and therefore difficult to prove dishonesty. Our concern is about getting the change, but in a way that is practical for businesses. Our concern is that if you just remove dishonesty and leave it as...

Derek Conway: ...that the programme resolution enables us to sit until 9.55 pm today. I presume that there will be a refreshment break at a convenient point this evening, depending on who is in the Chair.Clause 179 Cartel offence

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise Bill: Clause 183 - Investigation of offences under section 179 (23 Apr 2002)

Miss Melanie Johnson: ... ''only for the purposes of an investigation under subsection (1)''. Under subsection (1), the OFT may only ''conduct an investigation if there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that'' the cartel offence ''has been committed''. I entirely sympathise with the points that the hon. Members for Huntingdon and for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Carmichael) made, but I believe that the...
