Topic: Association News


The Government has tabled today a new amendment of the Corporate Manslaughter and Homicide Bill allowing the new offence to apply to deaths in prison and police custody.

This is a direct concession to the House of Lords that has refused to pass this bill unless it applied to such deaths.
