Armed Forces: Disciplinary Proceedings

Volume 498: debated on Tuesday 27 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what steps he has taken to ensure that internal disciplinary proceedings and findings of the Service Justice System, including proceedings which have taken place outside the UK, are taken into account. (294992)

Existing service justice system processes already inform the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) of appropriate findings both within and outside the UK. This procedure will continue. With compulsory Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) registration and monitoring not effective until November 2010, the implications for the services of this aspect of the Vetting and Barring Scheme are still being developed. To that end, we continue to work closely with both the ISA and CRB.
