Unfounded Childminder Complaints

EDM number 1809 in 2007-08, proposed by Susan Kramer on 17/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Child care and Ofsted.

That this House finds unfair the current Ofsted practice of not retrospectively removing from the record unfounded complaints made against childminders prior to 2006; recognises that the failure of Ofsted to do this can have a substantial detrimental effect on the ability of perfectly qualified childminders to gain employment; refuses to accept the finality of Ofsted's decision that the process of retrospectively removing unfounded claims prior to 2006 would be too costly and the work too disproportionate; and calls on Ofsted to remove unfounded retrospective complaints against childminders when a specific request is made to do so.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
