The detail of discussions with Cabinet peers are held in confidence. I would, however, like to reassure you that tackling economic crime is a priority for me, and the Home Secretary and I continue to work closely across Government, and with industry, including via our Economic Crime Strategic Board, to address the harm caused by economic crime to the UK.

In partnership with Treasury colleagues, we are working with the public and private sectors to develop the second Economic Crime Plan. This will set out our collective response for the future to reduce the scale of economic crime. We are also developing an ambitious 10 Year Fraud Strategy. We intend to publish these later this year.
