The Supreme Court has ruled that rules requiring disclosure of previous convictions as part of criminal records checks are disproportionate to the extent that they apply whenever there are two convictions and do not adequately take account of the special position of children. Nick Armstrong and Hugh Southey QC were instructed by Liberty. Tim Owen QC was instructed by Just for Kids Law.
