Suspension Of Driving Instructors Convicted Of A Sexual Offence

EDM number 2268 in 2007-08, proposed by Willie Rennie on 16/10/2008.
Categorised under the topic of Sexual offences.

That this House recognises the case of Lesley Anne Steele who two years ago was sexually assaulted by her driving instructor; notes with concern that the instructor was successfully prosecuted and placed on the sex offenders register but continued to operate as an instructor; welcomes the news that since March 2007 eight approved driving instructors (ADI) have been removed from the ADI register as a result of criminal records checks revealing a conviction for a sexual offence; expresses concern that promises to close the loophole preventing the ADI registrar from suspending instructors convicted of a sexual offence has not been implemented; and urges the Government to do so immediately.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
