Many bands these days, and rightly so, now have policies in place to protect children whilst at band. However if a player, who is on the sex offenders joins a band with no children or youth band they are of course, one would assume, entitled to do so. What if then that band goes to a contest where children will be, what steps are taken then. Now I know that because a person has made a mistake in life they cannot be punished forever, but it exposes a potential risk. Therefore should the Registry have access to the Register of Offenders and refuse to allow registration of said people.
