Margaret Mitchell (Central Scotland) (Con) I have a bit of a concern. I understand that this is an issue that relates to the move from eight forces to the single police force. However, it seems to me that the regulations could have the effect of making it much more difficult for sex offenders to comply with notification requirements, such as...
