I have been asked to reply.

The information requested is not available. However, my Department's statistical record shows that the number of people barred from or restricted in their employment in the education service in each of the last 3 years as a result of a conviction or a caution for a sexual offence relating to children was:

  • 1996: 99
  • 1997: 71
  • 1998: 52
