§ Lord Dholakia
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Why the review, announced last year, of the rehabilitation periods contained in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 has not yet started; when it will start; and what will be the form of the review. [HL4367]
§ Lord Bassam of Brighton
My right honourable friend the Home Secretary has been considering whether a more comprehensive review of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 should be undertaken. He hopes to make an announcement shortly.
