Oral Parliamentary Question (OPQ)
09.12.2008
485 c392
Lilley, Peter
Public Office (Misconduct)
Given that it was the intention of the Government, to their credit, and of this House, when passing the Freedom of Information Act and modifying the Official Secrets Act, that unauthorised disclosure of information not involving national security or intelligence should be dealt with as a disciplinary matter within the civil service and not by the criminal law, if it emerges that the police have extended the meaning of the offence of misconduct in public office beyond corruption to apply the criminal law to leaks, will it be the Government's intention to bring in statutory law to restore the intention of Parliament?
Ministry of Justice
Straw, Jack
