HC Deb 20 June 1996 vol 279 cc531-2W
Mr. Nicholas Baker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he plans to introduce a public register of paedophiles. [33112]

Mr. Maclean

The Government published a consultation paper, "Sentencing and Supervision of Sex Offenders", on 17 June which proposed that convicted sex offenders should be required to notify the police of their address and any subsequent moves. This information will provide the police with a register of the current whereabouts of sex offenders.
