Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What is it you want to achieve please?Alex
is he employed or does he volunteer?
Do the Scouts have a policy on historic sexual abuse matters?If so what does it say where there is no further action?
What does that say in terms of if allegations are made or tarnishing the Scouting name?
Ok, can he be excluded yes. The document certainly gives the power to do that.
It may be that even though there has been an unfounded allegation that parents are weary of sending children to that Scout group.
This means that they are able to exclude him. But I would hope they Would take a pragmatic approach and consider as there has been no evidence, no charge and no conviction that he is wholly innocent.
But to answer your question - can they exclude, yes. Are they likely to - no.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
