Rejected petition Stop England shipping released child sex offenders to Wales.

I propose a blanket ban on English, Irish or Scottish, convicted child sex offender's being able to move to Wales, either in protective custody or their own volition. Another convicted English paedophile was arrested in neath 11/5/2020 for re-offending.

We need to stop importing them.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

The Government of Wales Act 2006 establishes the extent of the Senedd’s power to make new laws and amend existing law (also known as legislative competence). Schedules 7A and 7B of the 2006 Act set out the issues which are ‘restricted’ or ‘reserved’ - i.e. areas where the UK Parliament, not the Senedd, can legislate.

Matters relating to justice, including sentencing by courts, enforcement of court orders, and aspects of policing related to protective custody, are reserved to the UK Parliament. As a result, it is not possible for the Senedd to take the action called for by your petition.

Further information about the legislative powers of the Senedd can be found here:
