DNA Database

Asked if the Government would be reviewing the DNA database system following the decision made by the European Court of Human Rights this morning, the Prime Minister s Spokesman (PMS) replied that the Home Secretary had already said that the existing law would remain in place while we considered the judgement.

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned about the decision and its implication, the PMS said that the Home Secretary had said this morning that we believed DNA and fingerprinting was vital to the fight against crime, we were disappointed by the European Court of Human Rights decision and would carefully consider the judgement.

Asked if more efforts would be made to get existing criminals on the DNA database, the PMS said that that was a question for the Home Office.
