DNA Inquiry

From Scotland’s Sunday Herald:

The Sunday Herald has learned that independent government advisory body the Human Genetics Commission (HGC) is to launch an investigation into the retention of DNA samples, this summer.

A source at the HGC said: “I don’t think there is any disagreement that DNA databases are useful things, but the discussion is who should be on it, how long you should be on it, and what safeguards should be in place.”
