Law Commission Reports
Law Commission Annual Report 2009-10
The Forty-Fourth Annual Report of the Law Commission
- The Law Commission
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The Law Commission's main task is to review areas of the law and to make recommendations for change. The Commission seeks to ensure that the law is as simple, accessible, fair, modern and cost-effective as possible.
In the year of 2009-10, the Commission published five reports, making recommendation in areas as diverse as criminal conspiracy, consumer insurance and trust law and launched 11 consultations.
The Commission was pleased to see the implementation of their recommendations in their reports on:
Reforming bribery as contained in the Bribery Act;
Capital & income in trusts: classification & apportionment; and
Murder, manslaughter and infanticide.
However, the Commission was disappointed with the then Government response to the report on Damages as contained in the draft Civil Law Reform Bill and the decision not to proceed with their work on Limitation. Also, for the first time this year the Commission staged an exhibition in the Houses of Parliament to raise their profile.
