Practice and Procedure

R v RC (2011)

PUBLISHED July 26, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 1872

On a literal construction of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Commencement No. 6, Transitional Provisions and Savings) Order 2009 the courts had to continue making orders under the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000 s.28 as well as informing the offender that he was barred from working with children under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006. Judgment to the contrary in Attorney General's Reference (No.18 of 2011), Re [2011] EWCA Crim 1300, [2012] 1 Cr. App. R. (S.) 27 was incorrect.
