Volume 496: debated on Tuesday 1 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Criminal Records Bureau checks in respect of individuals applying for posts which would require their names to be added to the list maintained under the (a) Protection of Children Act 1999 and (b) Protection of Vulnerable Adults Act 2003 were undertaken in each police force area in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. (288174)

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) does not maintain the lists of the Protection of Children Act 1999 (POCA) and the Protection of Vulnerable Adults Act 2003 (POVA). The POCA list is maintained by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the POVA list is maintained by the Department of Health (DOH).
