    Lord Hunt asked a Parliamentary Question about ” what response the Government  have made to the concerns of the National Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Children that the proposed changes to child protection measures could put children at risk”  
     Baroness Neville-Jones responded: “The Government have considered carefully the representations received from the National Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC ) and a number of meetings have been held with officials. The Home Secretary’s letter of 11 March to the right honourable Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleton (Yvette Cooper) sets out the Government’s policy on remodelling the vetting and barring scheme and has been provided to the NSPCC. A copy has been placed in the House Library.”
