HC Deb 08 November 1973 vol 863 c209W
23. Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will have a departmental inquiry to formulate proposals to ensure that regulations are so changed that persons convicted of petty crime in their youth are not banned from certain jobs and positions for the rest of their lives.

Mr. R. Carr

No, Sir. I do not know what regulations the hon. and learned Member has in mind, but it is a matter for individual employers to satisfy themselves as to the suitability of prospective employees.
