Child Sex Offenders (Information and Monitoring) Bill 2012: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the establishment of a scheme to allow the parents or guardians of a child or vulnerable adult to make an inquiry to the Gardaí for the purpose of ascertaining whether a person with whom their child is in contact has been convicted of a sexual offence or is otherwise likely to pose a serious danger to children; to allow schools or clubs to make inquires to safeguard children in their care; to modernise the monitoring of sex offenders; to amend the Sex Offenders Act 2001; and to provide for related matters.

Is the Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed to.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.

I move: "That the Bill be taken in Private Members' time."

Question put and agreed to.
