164.Section 77 amends section 30 of the PVG Act relating to notice of listing. Subsection (2) extends Ministers’ notification duty under section 30(3) of the PVG Act to personnel suppliers. Subsection (3) inserts new subsections (3A), (3B) and (3C) into section 30. Together, subsections (3A) and (3B) give Ministers a discretionary power to notify an individual who employs other persons but not in the course of business, for example a parent who is employing a music tutor to give their child piano lessons or an individual employing a carer within the context of self-directed care, that a scheme member is being considered for listing, and where appropriate give notice of any conditions imposed on the individual. Subsection (3C) allows Ministers to notify such persons of the outcome of the consideration for listing process.
