The UK Anti-Corruption Plan announced that the government would review the enforcement response to bribery and corruption more broadly. It would determine how to go even further in prosecuting and disrupting those who engage in bribery, corruption and associated economic crimes or hide the proceeds. The Plan said the review would include a full consideration of the powers, capabilities and structures involved in the response to bribery and corruption.
The Cabinet Office will lead the review and will report to the Inter-Ministerial Group on Anti-Corruption. Civil society, industry and practitioners will be invited to contribute to ensure that it takes account of a wide range of views on how to ensure the most effective response.
