ABSTRACT
The article reports that in late March the Home Office published its long-awaited reform proposals for corporate manslaughter and invited responses by June. The tone is measured and in marked contrast to some of the excoriating language within previous consultations. Victim groups, trade unions and corporate accountability' lobbies feel that large companies are never sufficiently punished, investigations take too long and culpable individuals are not held to account. Fear of individual prosecution fuels risk aversion.
