Children: ContactPoint

Volume 712: debated on Monday 29 June 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Morgan of Drefelin on 4 June (WA 102), whether parents ordinarily resident in England and with a home telephone number will be required to register mobile telephone numbers on the ContactPoint database. [HL4250]

There is no requirement for parents to register any information (including mobile telephone numbers) directly with ContactPoint.

If a parent has provided their mobile telephone number to one of ContactPoint's national or local data sources, such as a school, general practitioner or the Department for Work and Pensions then that organisation is required to supply that information to ContactPoint.
