Government Concedes on Custody Deaths Paving Way for Corporate Manslaughter Bill

Monday, 23rd Jul '07 at 08:56
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.
