HC Deb 10 April 2000 vol 348 c33W
Dr. Cable

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is Her Majesty's Government's policy on the OECD's Anti-bribery Convention. [118101]

Mr. Caborn

The Government strongly support the OECD Convention on Combating the Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions. We played a leading role in the negotiations of the Convention and were among the first countries to ratify it. We have played a full part in the peer review process associated with the Convention. The Government are not, however, complacent. The Home Office will publish in May the Government's proposals aimed at modernising the existing legislation, with a view to introducing new legislation as soon as possible thereafter.
