The Independent Safeguarding Authority

From October the Independent Safeguarding Authority will require anyone working with children to join a register at a cost of £63, and submit to ongoing checks, at which point the parent volunteers, the scout masters, the college maths students, the authors, music tutors and children's entertainers will find something else to do with their time.

(Extract from Henry Porter article "Britain is not radical enough")

quedula thinks these things seem to creep up on us unnoticed. How can anyone think it is a useful idea to charge volunteers for giving up their time?
