Fraud Bill

Fraud Bill

Session 2005-06
Other Bills before Parliament


Short Title of the Bill
Make provision for, and in connection with, criminal liability for fraud and obtaining services dishonestly.

Extract from Explanatory Note produced by Government Department   
The Government's policy on the reform of the criminal law of fraud is largely based on the Law Commission's Report on Fraud (Law Com No. 276, Cm 5560, 2002). The Law Commission's report did not deal with the position in Northern Ireland (because the Law Commission is concerned with the law in England and Wales). Views on the Law Commission's proposals were sought in the Government's consultation paper on Fraud Law Reform (May 2004). The Government's Response to the views expressed in consultations was published on the Home Office website (www.homeoffice.gov.uk/documents/cons-fraud-law-reform) on 24 November 2004. A parallel consultation was also carried out in Northern Ireland and responses were broadly similar to those in England and Wales.(Source: Explanatory Note Bill 166- EN)
