  1. What a fuss ,again under the guise of human rights.If all DNA was on file,it would greatly assist the police in solving crime and would be a deterent to would be offenders to offend,knowing that they could be quickly identified.Human rights  is one of the main cries these so called crusaders shout and bawl about.They put me in mind of the 1960s shop stewards who sought conflict at every small issue .We would all be safer giving our DNA

  2. Hello,
    I personally don’t have an issue with a DNA database – infact I’d be happy to see an international police database. This I think would prove much more effective in solving crime across borders. However, could such a database exist at a tie when for instance Britain has had to acknowledge the loss of Child Benefit details on a database, at a time when we’ve also had important data go missing within Government buildings?
     
    It therefore seems imperative to me that when a mistake does occur in the handling of data that the right safeguards are in place to deal with mistakes (unfortunately, they do occur). The UK public I believe are aware of this fact, and remarkably tolerant thus far in the wake of news stories that would have us beleive that any information we give will be lost.
     
    I beleive that we should allow to some extent for error rather than putting a department to a trial or witch-hunt when they’ve made a mistake, wer should learn as to why mistakes are made rather than focus on the "who" made a mistake. Data handling and dealing, data handling mistakes and the Freedom of Information Act are all in their infancy so, I believe its a evolving process that we must learn from.
