We had the Director of the Serious Fraud Office in front of the Justice Select Committee today. It was a great opportunity for us to remove the heat out of the Brexit debate and shine some light instead.
The Director was able to state that the loss of tools we currently have at our disposal will slow down our processes to track and trace criminals and hold them to justice. As anyone in security and policing will tell you time is always key in getting the best outcome.
Committees, unlike the floor of the House, allow MPs to cross-examine witnesses with a lot more detail. The Committee system is often overlooked but the evidence we gather, like this, should help everyone make a more informed decision on all areas of public life.
