The article focuses on the Fraud Bill, introduced by the British government in the parliament. It aims to reconstruct the country's fraud laws to enable the prosecutors to deal with modern methods of fraud with modern technology. The bill proposes to replace a number of existing offences with a single offence of fraud, which will cover false representation, a failure to disclose information and an abuse of one's position. Practical impacts of the bill have also been discussed.
