Reference Request Number 14487

12 April  2010

In a growing number of countries there appear to have been massive cover-ups of cases of sexual assaults on children and young people by Catholic priests. The Catholic Church has been shown to have moved assailants to different parishes, provided them with anonymity, and generally protected them - even forcing many of those assailed who have complained, to make vows of silence. The Church is also proven to have been widely guilty of not informing public authorities of such criminal activities of their "employees".
 
Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like answers to the following questions:

What is the Criminal Records Bureau doing to investigate Paedophilia in the Catholic Church in the UK?
 
In any investigations the CRB is carrying out, is it treating the Catholic Church as "a hostile witness", in other words, as an organisation that will not freely disclose relevant information?
 
How can parents be sure that CRB reports on Catholic priests are reliable?
 
Has the CRB issued a general warning about the situation in the Catholic Church?
 
What action will be taken against any priests found to have assaulted minors?

31 March  2010

On the 6th March 2008, the Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell wrote to the head of every government department suggesting they should replace bought-in bottled water with tap water for all meetings in future. The proposal aimed to extend the ‘tap water only policy’ throughout government departments and was expected to come into effect by the summer.


In May 2009, The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Justice (Lord Bach) said it "should be noted that all government departments have been encouraged to replace bought-in bottled water with tap water for all meetings. Furthermore, with regards to the use of water coolers, government sustainability policy encourages public sector organisations to change arrangements from bottled water coolers to plumbed-in mains fed provision so that tap water can be used where possible".


I am writing to ask whether the CRB has made a commitment to:
•     phase out bottled water in all meetings;
•     replace all bottled water coolers for staff and visitors with mains-fed coolers
•     provide better access to chilled tap water in public places


Further to this, have you stopped purchasing bottled water and if not, how much did you spend in the last financial year for which data is available?

In effect, are the employers with paid staff effectively subsidising the zero-charge for unpaid workers?
    
What would the external annual subsidy at current levels for unpaid staff need to be to remove the effective levy on paid worker disclosures to meet the cost of the unpaid disclosures?

2)  What constitutes 'maladministration' and how can this be proven?
 
3)  In successfull claims for compensation due to loss of earnings, does the award offered accurately reflect the amount of lost earnings and if not, why not?
 
4)  Since the outset of the CRB to date, have there been any case brought to the courts to settle disputed compensation claims?  Please give full details. 
 
5)  Who is ultimately accountable for delays in CRB checks when it is found that the delay was with the police and their checks?  This appears to be a 'grey area' and clarification is requested.

I note that the CRB do not require Mother’s Maiden name at all for a Standard or Enhanced check.  The CRB form does contain a field for it (E52), but this section is no longer required to be completed by the applicant.
 
According to the help section of the Disclosure Scotland Website (http://www.disclosurescotland.co.uk/help/), the decision to make it a mandatory field for their Disclosures is based on the recommendations of the Bichard Report:
 
“Following the Soham murder case, the Home Secretary requested that Sir Michael Bichard lead an independent inquiry into child protection measures, record keeping, vetting and information sharing. The report was published in June 2004 and 31 recommendations were made. The mother’s family name became a mandatory field as part of our disclosure application process. It emerged that by using his mother’s maiden name, Ian Huntley managed to escape detection from background vetting checks. This was because the surname he provided when applying for his post differed from the surname under which the police held intelligence for him. Since this change was implemented Disclosure Scotland can obtain criminal information held against an applicant using their mother’s maiden name, this information is therefore relevant.”
 
I would be grateful if you could explain why mother’s maiden/family name is not a mandatory field for Disclosures and exactly how your vetting process takes place e.g. how you determine that you have found a trace when you conduct your searches. We will then be in a better position to explain to applicant’s and clients why this is required for Disclosures through Disclosure Scotland but not the CRB.

Firstly, I would like to find out for our readers, what is the procedure if a CRB check is performed on national of the new member states.  I would like to clarify if the check is  done using the last three addresses of this person – so for example if a person relocated three times while leaving in UK, would you check the criminal record at the country of origin as well.

If possible, I would also like to learn if it takes longer to have a CRB done for a foreign national that is a resident in UK.

What is more, I wander what happens if a check performed by CRB show unspent convictions abroad?

And the very last question – if a criminal record is checked because an employer would like to check if a potential employee is safe to work with children and vulnerable adults, would it show criminal offences or convictions other than that as well?

Further to my request below, I understand that in order to know the number of volunteer CRB’s processed by you for Suffolk CC I need to submit an FOI request.

Therefore please can you respond to the following request.

“Provide the figures for the number of CRB Disclosure Application Forms you have received and processed for Suffolk County Council by month in each of the last 4 years for Volunteers?  If possible the number processed should be cross tabulated with Organisation Name (supplied in line 14 of the application form)These will be the forms that have been processed where the box on Section Y titled ‘Volunteer-no payment due’ has been crossed.”

Under the FOI Act 2000 I would like to know the following:
 
1. How many Enhanced CRB applications have been received by you from the NHS since Jan this year.
2. How many of the enhanced checks have been completed within 4 weeks.
3. What the average time frame is for completing an enhanced check.
4. If you are a ‘one stop shop’ for organizations, checking police records and, in relevant cases, information held by the Department of Health (DH) and the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF), would it not be easier for you to have access to their records, rather then sending it to various police forces to check?
5. Why the fast track system has been removed for NHS Staff and if there is plans to re-introduce it.
6. How many NHS staff are currently waiting for clearance so they can start working in hospitals that are already undermanned.

How many applications were made for CRB checks (disclosures) on teachers applying to schools in Northern Ireland during the 2008 calendar year and of that number, how many had criminal convictions? Please also specify the nature of each criminal offence (for example how many were murderers, paedophiles, flashers, brothel-keepers etc). I note you were able to provide UK-wide information for a newspaper, including the number and type of criminal convictions, so I expect you shall be able to provide it for Northern Ireland – a more narrow request – within the FOI limit


Reference Request Number 11339

Reference Request Number 11097

Thank you for your letter of 7 Jan 09. It might give us some comfort if you could put this present delay in context, e.g. what percentage of applications take 5 month, 6 months, 7 months etc.


Reference Request Number 11142

24 April 2009

Please can you tell me how many Disclosures were issued by the CRB for the following years: 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and, if possible, split these figures into Enhanced & Standard disclosures.


Reference Request Number 11070

24 April 2009

I was recently asked to provide fingerprints in connection with an application for disclosure.  I understand the need to protect the vulnerable but am concerned that, apparently, someone is committing crimes in an identity that is otherwise indistinguishable from mine.  I would be grateful for the following information.

1. What are the criteria under which CRB caseworkers decide whether a fingerprint check is required?

2. Where fingerprints are requested for the sole purpose of distinguishing an applicant from a specific offender who has already been identified, why is it appropriate to permit the police to use those fingerprints in “speculative searches”?

3. Why is this information not issued to applicants on a routine basis when fingerprints are required, given the obvious anxiety that will be caused by telling an individual that their identity is so close to that of a criminal that they cannot be distinguished in any other way?


Reference Request Number 11278

Reference Request Number 11629

21 April 2009

We would greatly appreciate it, if the CRB could provide me with the annual lodgement figures for Criminal Records Check registrations made by employers with CRB for FYs 2005/2006, 2006/2007 and 2007/2008. Please note that I have asked similar requests for the annual figures for other employment forms owned by other Govt Depts like HMRC, DWP and Home Office. 

Please note that annual data that we require is for all the Disclosure applications for criminal record checks made by employers. We appreciate that these employers have to go through Registered or Umbrella Bodies but we don't need to know how many of these bodies applied for the checks but rather the total number of employers they all represented.


Reference Request Number 11341

21 April 2009

I would be grateful if you could provide me with a copy of the feasibility study conducted and all of the relevant documentation produced both by the CRB, and any other partner organisations that the CRB have worked with, which cover the progress made towards the introduction of the Basic Disclosure Certificate, as is already possible through both Disclosure Scotland and Access NI.
