Repeal law requiring criminal record to be revealed when buying house insurance

A law was introduced requiring disclosure of criminal record when buying house insurance.  This law requires disclosure even if the person with the criminal record is not buying the insurance but simply residing at the property.  This is totally unfair as a person's criminal record has nothing to do with the insurance company, unless a false claim is made.  Revealing a criminal record of a resident of a household should not affect the ability to buy house insurance, which is a requirement of a mortgage, and penalises the householder excessively.  It contravenes the civil liberties of the householder, who has the right to have someone in the household with a criminal record as long as they make no false claims.

Why does this idea matter?

 

Many people have been penalised by the introduction of this law and it should be repealed.
