    Or, possibly, because the laws on rape & armed robbery are quite old, and therefore have comparatively low maximum sentences, whereas the laws on hacking are new and therefore have quite high maximum sentences.

  • Graeme Edgeler,

    A partial result - the select committee has recommended that the bit of the law that would allow the executive to amend references to "crime" in statutes by regulation should be removed. If there are any such references remaining, it will be up to Parliament to make the amendments itself.

    The specific changes around the computer crime offence and other such matter stay, however.
