With this it will be convenient to discuss the following amendments: No. 131, in clause 20, page 13, line 4, at end insert—

‘(1A) Guidance issued under subsection (1) shall include a description of how an employer deciding to employ a barred person to undertake controlled activity will be required to demonstrate that they have considered the following—

(a) the level of access to children or vulnerable adults afforded by the post;

(b) what other information they had about an individual, including any summary of the reasons for a barring decision;

(c) what safeguards they have put in place in order to minimise the risk of harm; and

(d) how they will review the risk posed by the employment.’.

No. 108, in clause 20, page 13, line 5, leave out ‘have regard to’ and insert

‘act in accordance with any’.
