National DNA Database

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 8 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people with entries in the National DNA Database are resident in Wirral West constituency. (173623)

Information held on the NDNAD is available on a police force area basis but not a constituency basis. As at 6 December 2007, there were an estimated 107,208 individuals with a DNA profile on the National DNA Database (NDNAD) taken by Merseyside police. This figure is for people who had a DNA sample taken by Merseyside police, so in addition to residents of Merseyside, it includes people resident in other areas who had a DNA sample taken by that force, and excludes people resident in Merseyside who have had a sample taken by another force.
