National DNA Database

Volume 713: debated on Wednesday 21 October 2009

Statement

My honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Crime Reduction (Alan Campbell) has today made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I have today placed the National DNA Database (NDNAD) annual report for 2007-08 and 2008-09 in the Library. The Government accept the need for ongoing accountability to the public on the operation of the NDNAD. The NDNAD annual report, which publishes details of its activities, is an important part of the aim to increase transparency and maintain and improve public confidence in the oversight, management and operations of the NDNAD.
