At the end of sitting weeks the Justice Committee publishes a brief summary of its activities in the form of a weekly update.

This week

Work of the Serious Fraud Office - Oral evidence

On Tuesday 18 December at 10.00am we heard from the Director of the Serious Fraud Office, Lisa Osofsky, who has been in post since the end of August 2018.

We discussed, among other issues, her priorities for the SFO, how the SFO is funded, international collaboration and the potential impact of Brexit.

We also met in private to agree correspondence for publication and discuss future work.
