Collection, retention and deletion of DNA

How many people noticed that The Home Secretary recently announced a public consultation exercise into proposals for changing the law on collection, retention and deletion of DNA and fingerprints.

Police Forces have since been receiving a high number of calls from members of the public wanting their DNA to be deleted from records. However the announcement was about a consultation exercise and public debate

* the law has not changed, yet, and we don't know whether it will be until the consultation and debate has taken place

* the public is being invited to respond to the Home Office by 7 July
