To ask the Attorney-General if he will place in the Library a copy of each item of advice he has received from (a) officials in his Department, (b) the OECD and other UK or international governmental agencies, (c) private organisations and individuals, (d) the Director of the Serious Fraud Office and (e) others on the future arrangements for (i) investigating and (ii) prosecuting serious financial crimes committed in (A) the UK and (B) by UK citizens or companies abroad.
Officials' advice to Ministers relating to policy advice within Government is covered Under Exemption 2—internal discussion and advice—of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information. It would therefore not be appropriate to place it in the Library.
The responsibility for releasing any other advice on this issue that may have been submitted to my office by outside organisations or individuals would fall to them to make public should they wish to do so.
