MHK keeps campaigning for 'Sarah's Law'

Thu, 16 Jun 2011


An MHK says he'll keep campaigning until tighter laws are brought in to deal with child sex offenders.

North Douglas member Bill Henderson will ask Home Affairs Minister Adrian Earnshaw questions in Tynwald next week.

He's looking for up to date figures on how many cases of sexual abuse against children there've been on the Island over the last five years.

Mr Henderson is also a supporter of Sarah's Law and thinks it should be brought in here.

It would mean parents could have access to information to show if a child sex offender is living near to their family.

It's an issue that's been brought up before, but Mr Henderson thinks it needs revisiting.[Play audio file below]
