Affirmative Approval Motion
Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2019 Baroness Barran moved that the draft Order laid before the House on 1 April be approved. Then Baroness Chakrabarti moved, as an amendment to the above motion, at the end insert “but that this House regrets that the Order introduces the provision for spent convictions and cautions to be disclosed to all future public inquiries, which risks undermining rehabilitation and a person’s private life, and calls on Her Majesty’s Government to respect protections afforded to offenders under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.” After debate, the amendment was agreed to (see division). Then the original motion, as amended, was agreed to.
