letting agents under clause 24, there is no conflict with the requirement to make an entry in the

“make an entry in the database in respect of a person”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment clarifies the drafting to ensure that it is possible to make more than one entry in

 

the database in respect of the same person. This might occur if a person is convicted of a new

 

banning order offence after he or she has been included in the database in respect of an earlier

 

banning order offence. A person may have several concurrent entries although for anyone

 

searching the database they may in practice be displayed as a single entry.

This Act

breach of banning order)

  
 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

In the Bill as introduced a rent repayment order is available where a person commits an offence

 

to which Chapter 4 of Part 2 applies or breaches a banning order. NC3 makes breach of a banning

 

order a criminal offence so it is now possible to treat it in the same way as other offences to which

 

Chapter 4 applies. That is the purpose of this amendment and various other amendments to

 

Chapter 4.
