Motion text

That this House notes that there are multiple bodies to which fraud may be reported but that it is unclear which body should be approached in any particular circumstance; believes that these structures appear complicated and even unmanageable and that this may discourage victims of fraud from effectively reporting it; further notes that it is not always clear, even to those bodies investigating fraud, whether a criminal or civil law has been broken, which can lead to victims of fraud being passed between agencies; further notes that victims of fraud often experience an undue sense of shame which may inhibit willingness fully to report the crime; and therefore calls for the simplification of the procedure by which members of the public may report suspected cases of fraud.
