Lack of resources could hinder Bribery Act

Resisting a bribe

The Bribery Act, passed in April 2010 with cross-party support, gives prosecutors a better legal framework to prosecute bribery.

The watchdog said the Act would also help to level the playing field for the vast majority of UK companies that want to conduct their business in a responsible manner. However, the budget of the Serious Fraud Office is being cut by 26% from £55m to £39m, with a further 25% cut expected.
