This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Disclosure and Barring Service should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Disclosure and Barring Service,

It has come to me and associates attention that you employed Graeme Smith a paedophile for a few years.

1] Do your staff have in-house checks and how often are they followed up for criminal records?

2] Do you have discretion to employ anybody with a conviction ?

3] Does your public liability insurance cover man/women for criminal records and who is you public liability insurance company for 2017 ?

4] What is your postal address (not PO BOX Number) should we want to contact you in writing ?

5] Do DBS staff have enhanced disclosures ?

Kind regards,

peter danby and associates

Dear D Dennett,

As your staff do not have follow up checks by Home Office to Baseline Personnel Security Standard, this is a conflict of interests..... Men/women who have DBS checks do not get this entitlement of in-house checks, why the discrepancy ?

Who is the responsible man/woman who considers employing men/women with criminal records for employment with the Disclosure and Barring Service (CRB) ?

As DBS does not have Public Liability Insurance, how are staff expected to make a claim if they have an accident?

Do you have indemnity insurance and contact details of the indemnity company please ?

Why do you not publicly disclose you lawful address to contact DBS, rather than a PO BOX Number ?

So as staff are base line checked, not enhanced checked, how can men/women have reassurance that you are not employing paedophiles like Graeme Smith in the near future ?

Kind regards,

Dear Mr Danby

Thank you for your email.

The basis of an internal review is to dispute the original response issued based on the questions raised and for the DBS to ascertain if the original response provided to you was correct. However, as you are asking further questions which were not part of your original request we will treat this as a new request for you under reference FOI 1616.

Dear Elise White,

1] As you are a so called public authority, why does Disclosure and Barring Service require commercial insurance?

2] You have also not given an address for lawful purposes, please can you supply it ?

3] A Po Box Number is not a contractual address, why does DBS use them ?

Kind regards,

Dear Mr Danby

Thank you for your email below addressed to the Disclosure and Barring Service's Freedom of Information team.

I should inform you that your request does not meet the threshold for a Freedom of Information request. Section 8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act requires that a request for information must describe the information requested in a way that enables us to identify the information and assess whether or not we hold it. Your questions are asking for an opinion rather than recorded fact.

Therefore we will address your questions as enquiries and in order for us to do so, I should be grateful if you could clarify what you mean by an address for lawful purposes and a contractual address.

It would also be helpful if you could explain the significance of the question relating to commercial insurance; I am going to need to seek advice on that point so anything you can provide by way of context will help us to address this point.

Yours sincerely

D Dennett

Dear D Dennett,

I asked a specific question regarding question 1] As you are a so called public authority, why does Disclosure and Barring Service require commercial insurance? Can you please elaborate as to why you have commercial insurance, but cant answer the question ?

Question 2] of my FOI request asks why do you use a PO Box number, so your response is this is not recorded information ?

Question 3] asks why do you use a none contractual PO Box number, your reply is you do not have recorded information, but you do use a PO Box Number as a none contractual address, so surely this is recorded information ?

Dear D Dennett,

As staff at Disclosures and Barring Service found my question to contentious, i received a letter stating they do not want to speak to me on the phone, are you now wavering the ban ?

Robin Walker MP has confirmed to me that migrant workers cannot be thoroughly checked for criminal records from blitzed countries after some deliberation. As this is the case, DBS is a money making scam that does not check everybody working with vulnerable men/women or children, this is a disgrace and also disrespectful to the indigenous people who live in the UK".

The fact that DBS employed a paedophile just goes to show that anybody who has a clean criminal record can at anytime be a unscrupulous person and checks do not stop criminal activity taking place".

Kind regards,

peter danby & associates
