That this House notes the Labour Party's commitment to the introduction of an offence of corporate manslaughter, which followed a recommendation from the Law Commission to introduce the same; further notes the publication of the book, The Case for Corporate Responsibility, by the victims of a number of major accidents which also called for the introduction of such an offence; and calls on the Government to announce that it is to fulfil this commitment via an announcement in this year's Queen's Speech.
