Clegg: Child worker checks to be more proportional

Millions of people in England and Wales who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable adults will no longer need criminal record checks, ministers say.

The change is part of the government's Freedoms Bill, being unveiled later.

On BBC Breakfast, the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said with the new scheme, criminal checks on child workers would be "more proportional".
