HC Deb 31 July 1998 vol 317 c845W
Mr. Laurence Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to require convicted paedophiles subject to the Sex Offences Register to inform the authorities if they plan to travel abroad. [53981]

Mr. George Howarth

We will shortly be starting a review of the effectiveness of the registration provisions of the Sex Offenders Act 1997. The question of convicted sex offenders who travel abroad will form part of that review.
