Member’s explanatory statement


The offence of wrongful disclosure of information under paragraph 25 of Schedule 4 is triable ei­


ther on indictment or summarily. When section 154 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 comes into


force, the maximum term of imprisonment on summary conviction should change from 6 months to


12 months (not 51 weeks, which is appropriate for summary-only offences).

in paragraph (d),’.


Member’s explanatory statement

ly managed, rather than contracted-out.
