MoJ opens consultation on Bribery Act after senior lawyers call for clarity
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has launched a two-month consultation on the Bribery Act in an effort to help businesses prepare for new legislation. The consultation opened yesterday (14 September) and will run until 8 November, with all parties set to be affected by the Act encouraged to give feedback. It comes after the Government announced on 20 July that it will postpone the implementation of the Act until April 2011 in order to give companies a chance to put proper procedures in place.
