§ Mr. Skinner
To ask the Attorney-General what discussions he has held recently with the Director of Public Prosecutions about City fraud; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Attorney-General
I frequently meet the Director of Public Prosecutions to discuss matters of departmental interest. However, as I said in my answer to the hon. Member on 9 July 1990, primary responsibility for the prosecution of commercial fraud rests with the Serious Fraud Office. I met the director of the Serious Fraud Office on Monday 16 July to discuss matters of departmental interest.
