FOI 1080:

The number of people added to:

  • the barred list relating to working with children
  • the barred list relating to working with adults
  • the barred list relating to working with children and adults in each of the last four years.

For each category, I would like to know:

  • the number added to the list following conviction for an offence that qualifies for an automatic bar
  • the number added to the list following conviction for an offence that qualifies for an automatic bar with the right to make representations
  • conversely, I would like to know the number who were not placed on the barred list because of representations made
  • the number added to the list following referral to the BBS (or the ISA before this) without a conviction

Finally, I would like to know how many people were removed from each of the 3 barred lists in each of the past four years, and how many of these people were removed after an application from the individual.
