Disclosure Of Convictions Held Abroad

EDM number 492 in 2014-15, proposed by John Mann on 06/11/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice, Crime, Data protection and Employment.

That this House notes that the criminal convictions held by EU citizens that are revealed by a Disclosure and Barring Service check are only those held in central records in the UK; is concerned that this does not therefore include convictions held abroad of foreign nationals; further notes that it is not obligatory for an employer to require an employee to provide a certificate of good conduct from their home country; and therefore calls on the Government to introduce and enforce the obligatory disclosure of any previous convictions held by EU and other foreign-born citizens upon application for a job in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
