Protection of Vulnerable Groups Written Answer, 15/03/12 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Ruth Davidson's (Cons) question asking the Scottish Executive what progress has been made to ensure that all people who do regulated work become members of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme and when it expects the retrospective checking of such workers to begin.

The Minister for Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell, replied that in the first year of the operation of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme 165,000 people have become PVG scheme members; 700 individuals have been placed under formal consideration for listing; and 124 individuals have been listed, which means that they are unable to do regulated work with children or protected adults.

Retrospective checking will begin in the near future.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 15 March 2012 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
