The programme considered the Bribery Bill, currently before Parliament, in the light of the recent decision by the Director of the SFO to enter into a plea bargain with BAE systems, under which BAE plan to plead guilty to a regulatory offence but not to bribery.

Professor Peter Alldridge was specialist advisor to the Joint Parliamentary Committee on the Draft Bribery Bill – the pre-legislative scrutiny phase in respect of this Bill – in the summer of 2009.
