So, recent decades have seen an insistence that everyone must have CRBs. Not quite everyone, but damn near.
So, the answer is to expunge offences from records?
Criminals will have minor offences wiped from their records under plans being considered by Sajid Javid to stop them being denied jobs by “spent” convictions.
The Home Secretary is reviewing a rule where anyone with more than one conviction, no matter how minor, automatically has them disclosed to a prospective employer for the rest of their lives.
The new plan could mean minor assaults, thefts or drug possession would not automatically be disclosed to employers by the Government disclosure and barring service.
Why note reduce the demands for CRBs?
