Research Papers are an occasional series of papers, numbered by year and sequence of publication, and usually deal with topics of current parliamentary interest.

Standard Notes are generally shorter and more informal than Research Papers. They serve a variety of purposes, but are often used to supply a quick response on subjects raised frequently by Members of Parliament, or to provide an update on legislation or other important developments. They are usually evolving documents which are updated from time to time but we do not have the capacity to keep them all up-to-date, so please note the dates on them.

This note summarises the child sex offender disclosure scheme, also known as Sarah’s law, under which members of the public can ask the police whether an individual (e.g. a neighbour or family friend) is a convicted sex offender.
