    People convicted of terrorism or extremism will be treated like sex offenders and automatically barred from working with children and vulnerable people, David Cameron will announce today.
    Launching the Government’s new strategy to combat extremism, the Prime Minister will pledge that the Government will do more to protect young people from radicalisation.

    The new plans will see the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) given new powers to ensure anyone with a conviction or civil order for terrorist or extremist activity is automatically banned from working with children and vulnerable people, in the same way as those convicted of sexual offences are banned from working with children.


    This does seem like a step in the right direction
