HC Deb 02 March 1989 vol 148 c257W
Mr. Cran

To ask the Attorney-General what plans he has to implement the recommendations of the 1981 Law Commission report on breach of confidence affecting the disclosure of information obtained by improper means.

The Attorney-General

The Law Commission's report No. 110, Cmnd. 8388, amounts for the most part to a recommendation for a restatement of the common law of breach of confidence and the Government do not propose, particularly in the light of recent judgments which restate that law, to give its implementation high priority at present.
