Vetting: Training

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs what the average cost was of training officers in the court system to perform Criminal Records Bureau checks in the latest period for which figures are available. (134167)

My Department currently has 40 staff in its Human Resources Directorate who are trained in assessing criminal records information received from the Criminal Records Bureau. These are supported by administrative staff who have been trained in the checks process. These staff perform criminal records checks duties as part of their job roles. The cost of training these staff is not held centrally and is available only at disproportionate cost.
