HC Deb 16 September 2004 vol 424 c1685WS
Ms Keeble

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether criminal records bureau checks are carried out on all staff working in young offenders institutions, including those operated by the private sector. [188312]

Paul Goggins

Prison Service policy requires the Governor of each establishment, including young offender institutions to arrange for a Criminal Records Bureau check on all those appointed to work with children under 18 years of age. These arrangements also apply to young offender institutions operated by the private sector.
