Fraud and the Justice System

Inquiry

This short inquiry seeks to examine the ability of the Justice System to effectively prosecute fraud cases. The Committee is particularly interested in how the system is set up to tackle lower-level frauds, that are often not serious enough to be considered by the Serious Fraud Office but have a significant impact on the public. We also seek to understand the plans that the Government and bodies working in the Justice System have to tackle rising instances of fraud.
