What are your views on the government's Freedom Bill?
The government is publishing a bill which will mean millions of people in England and Wales who work or volunteer with children will no longer need criminal record checks. Does this worry you?
Teachers will continue to be vetted - but those who do occasional, supervised volunteer work will not.
Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg said the Freedom Bill, which will also include giving residents more control over CCTV, limiting police stop and search powers and ending the indefinite storage of innocent people's DNA will change the current system, which treats people with "too much distrust and suspicion".
Do you agree with the bill? Do you think the state treats you like a criminal? Is this a win for civil liberties and common sense or as a parent, do you think this is a step too far?
