To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to respond substantively to the recommendation of the Review of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 in relation to the deletion of offenders' criminal records at 18 for the purposes of employment. 
The Government response to the Review was published in April 2003, and a copy placed in the Library. The recommendation attracted little support and the Government has deferred consideration of it until the impact of other elements of the proposed new disclosure scheme on the resettlement of young offenders can be assessed.
