25 August 201224 September 201229 August 2012The Criminal Records Bureau has identified your organisation that processes CRB applications. Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), I hereby request the following: -

The complete list of all Employer's Names for CRB certificates processed by your organisation.

For the purposes of clarity this is the entry known as Name of Employer on the CRB certificate.
