Excerpt from The Law Relating to Secret Commissions and Bribes: Christmas Boxes, Gratuities, Tips, Etc;; The Prevention of Corruption Act, 1906 The Object Of the present volume is to deal in a concise, summary form with the law relating to bribery, more particularly as it concerns agents. The Prevention Of Corruption Act, 1906, has received more detailed treatment, and some account is given of its history and the results which have followed its operation. The success Of this Act has been somewhat thwarted by the necessity of Obtaining the fiat Of the attorney-general or solicitor-general in England or Ireland before commencing a prosecution. A Bill to remedy this defect and to make other changes, was read a second time last session in the House of Commons and was re-introduced to-day. AS the question Of bribes and secret commissions is one that is Of interest and importance to the commercial community, it has been deemed desirable to consider the subject from the practical as well as the legal point Of view. The author desires to acknowledge the courtesy of the Benchers of Gray's Inn for permission to use his Lee Prize Essay of 1908, entitled The Law, Civil and Criminal, of Principal and Agent, so far as it relates to Profits, whether secret or disclosed, made by the Agent in the course Of his Agency. He is under considerable Obligations to Mr. R. M. Leonard (secretary of the Secret Commissions and Bribery Prevention League), who has kindly permitted him to use his informative pamphlet, War against Bribery, in connection with the history and working of the Act of 1906.
