To ask the Attorney-General if he will seek assurances from the Director of the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) that the time that has elapsed since Ministers requested that the SFO investigate G4S and Serco over tagging overcharges has not resulted in the loss of important evidence.

The Director of the SFO opened a criminal investigation into G4S and Serco electronic monitoring contracts in autumn 2013. SFO cases are by their nature complex, lengthy and resource intensive. It would not be appropriate to comment further on a current investigation.
