HC Deb 13 July 1999 vol 335 c111W
Dr. Starkey

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he plans to implement the Law Commission recommendation on corporate manslaughter. [90242]

Mr. Boateng

An inter-departmental working group, which includes a member of the Law Commission, is currently considering all of the recommendations contained in the Law Commission's report number 237 "Legislating the Criminal Code: Involuntary Manslaughter", including those relating to corporate manslaughter. We expect to receive the working group's recommendations shortly and will then consider how to take them forward.
