Section 34: Restoration of a disqualification order

88.Where a tribunal has reviewed a disqualification and has ordered that it should cease to have effect, Section 34 allows for the disqualification order to be restored, and sets out the circumstances under which that might occur. Where an individual no longer subject to a disqualification order acts in a way which gives either a chief officer of police or a director of social services reasonable cause to believe that the individual’s behaviour threatens the safety of children and that a further disqualification order is necessary to protect children from serious harm, the chief officer or director can apply to a High Court for a disqualification order to be made. The High Court, if satisfied that the conditions of Subsection (2) are met, can order the restoration of the order. (Paragraphs in Schedule 7 also provide for the restoration of previously disqualified individuals to the lists maintained by the Secretary of State.)
