The Law Commission asks for any submissions or comments on this Issues Paper on Civil Pecuniary Penalties. The submission can be set out in any format but it is helpful to specify the number of the question you are discussing.

Submitters are invited to focus on any of the questions, particularly in areas that especially concern them, or about which they have particular views. It is certainly not expected that each submitter will answer every question.

Alternatively, submitters may like to make a comment about the Civil Pecuniary Penalties review that is not in response to a question in the paper and this is also welcomed.
