The Bill failed to complete its passage through Parliament before the end of the session. This means the Bill will make no further progress.

Summary of the Criminal Records (Public Access) Bill 2010-12

The Bill would require that a criminal records office (defined as "the Criminal Records Bureau or any successor body with similar statutory functions") must keep copies of all Magistrates’ Courts Registers, and any other registers produced by a court listing convictions, in electronic form, and must make these accessible to the public. It would provide that such information would not be considered 'personal information' for the purpose of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
