For each priority area, what the Scottish Executive needs to do and what it invites public, private, voluntary, community and older people’s organisations to do to bring about change is highlighted, along with success criteria.

The Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) bill: pre-consultation discussion paper on secondary legislation

Author:
SCOTLAND. Scottish Executive
Publisher:
Scotland. Scottish Executive
Publication year:
2007
Pagination:
39p.
Place of publication:
Edinburgh

The Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) bill sets out how the vetting and barring scheme will operate in general terms and secondary legislation will be used to provide the details of the scheme and ensure it operates effectively. This discussion paper has been produced in response to the Education Committee’s stage 1 report on the Protection of Vulnerable (Groups) bill. The preference to see draft regulations prior to the amending stage in the Bill would have led to a significant delay in progressing the primary legislation and securing the robust safeguards and protections which will flow from the new vetting and barring scheme. The discussion paper sets out the issues and policy options on the three substantive secondary legislation areas namely, retrospective checking, determination criteria, and fees. Full and comprehensive consultation will follow.
