Criminal Records Bureau

Volume 716: debated on Tuesday 5 January 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the announcement by the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families on 14 December concerning Criminal Records Bureau checks, whether they plan to require families intending to educate their children at home to be subject to such checks. [HL814]

There is absolutely no question of local authorities CRB-checking home educating parents, nor of ISA registration being required in future.

Vetting and barring arrangements that are appropriate for people working with children do not apply to family members.
