Britain is implementing the Bribery Act in late June or early July. The tough new anti-corruption laws were due to be implemented by April but the Justice Secretary, Ken Clarke, delayed their introduction after companies complained the legislation was too strict and created uncertainty for multinationals and firms seeking business abroad.

Mr Clarke will publish guidance, originally expected in January, detailing how companies can comply with the rules and avoid prosecution tomorrow.
