Soca, Scotland Yard and the Information Commissioner, Christopher Graham, have requested that none of the names on the list are published.
Mr Graham appeared before the Committee last month and is to provide an update on 8th October.
In his most recent letter, Mr Graham said:
The Public Accounts Committee had threatened to release a full list of 102 of those involved.
Among those suspected of dealing with private investigators who broke the law:
- Five retailers
- Four legal firms
- Three insurance companies
- Two financial businesses
- One construction firm
- One security company
A further three private investigators were also included.
Information Commissioner Christopher Graham and his office were initially handed a list of 98 clients of corrupt private detectives by the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca).
Among them, 12 firms on the list were found to be no longer trading, while the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) was awaiting further information on another 11.
A total of 19 clients of rogue private eyes will be investigated for illegal activity, the data watchdog has confirmed.
In a letter to Keith Vaz MP, Information Commissioner Christopher Graham said 125 victims were believed to be affected by the companies and individuals under criminal investigation for data protection breaches.
MPs had threatened to release a full list of 102 of those involved if action was not taken.
