Policing and Crime Bill — New Clause 60 — Report on Operation of Child Abduction Warning Notices — 13 Jun 2016 at 21:12
The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report on the operation of Child Abduction Warning Notices.
MPs were considering the Policing and Crime Bill.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Duty to report on Child Abduction Warning Notices and stated:
- “(1) Each police force in England and Wales must report to the Secretary of State each year on—
- (a) the number of Child Abduction Warning Notices issued;
- (b) the number of Child Abduction Warning Notices breached; and
- (c) the number of Sexual Risk Orders and Sexual Harm Prevention Orders issued following the breach of a Child Abduction Warning Notice.
- (2) The Secretary of State must prepare and publish a report each year on—
- (a) the number of Child Abduction Warning Notices issued in each police force in England and Wales;
- (b) the number of Child Abduction Warning Notices breached in each police force in England and Wales; and
- (c) the number of Sexual Risk Orders and Sexual Harm Prevention Orders issued following the breach of a Child Abduction Warning Notice in each police force in England and Wales and must lay a copy of the report before Parliament.
An attempt to establish Child Abduction Warning Notices on a statutory basis was rejected in a previous vote in February 2015. As described at the time of that vote they were orders which ban an individual from being in the company of a specified child. At the time of this vote police forces were issuing the orders regardless of the lack of a statutory basis for them.
