One-stop shop for record checks;In brief

29th January 1999 at 00:00
THE HOME Office plans to make it easier for employers to spot potential abusers by creating a "one-stop shop" for checking the records of people working with children.

Through the Criminal Records Bureau, employers will have access not only to criminal records but also to the List 99 held by the Department for Education and Employment. This lists people barred from, or restricted in work, with schools. There will also be access to the Consultancy Index held by the Department of Health, which contains information on child carers.
