This consultation paper examines these two areas of criminal law. With conspiracy, conviction is dependent on it being proved that the perpetrator actually knows that the crime will be committed. The law's definition of "preparatory" has become too generous to the accused. The Commission puts forward 21 proposals for consultation (which closes on 31 January 2008).

These will, it is hoped, raise 8 of the Commission’s 14 proposals and answer 7 of its 9 questions.

In October 2007 the Law Commission published Consultation Paper No 183 on Conspiracy and Attempt. This working paper addresses some of the questions and concerns raised by the conspiracy section of that consultation paper. In particular it argues that, contrary to the Law Commission's proposals, a mens rea of recklessness should not be adopted with regard to conspiracies to commit crimes involving an actus reus element of circumstances, for the simple reason that this has the potential to turn agreements not to commit offences into conspiracies to commit them.

Issues discussed include: the existing law.

Issues discussed include: the existing law and problems with it; the definition of murder and manslaughter; partial defences including provocation, diminished responsibility and duress; the fault element in murder and the concept of intention; and the doctrine of double-effect.

In this consultation paper, the Law Commission sets out the case for reducing the scope for criminal law to be used in regulated fields such as farming, food safety, banking and retail sales. Criminal sanctions should only be used to tackle serious wrongdoing and it is out of proportion for regulators to rely wholly on the criminal law to punish and deter activities that are merely 'risky', unless the risk involved is a serious one. There has been a steep increase in the number of criminal offences created since the late 1980s to penalise risk-taking.

In our report we make recommendations on statutory conspiracy to: clarify the existing law in relation to agreement to engage in conduct and, where relevant, bring about the consequences of an offence which is the subject of the conspiracy. make explicit the requirement of proof of intention that the conduct element and, where relevant, any consequence element should take place.
