Ten days ago, shadow home secretary Chris Grayling demanded that the Government put a stop to storing the samples of innocent people on the national DNA database.
No surprise then, that shadow home affairs minister Damian Green – a free man after the CPS decided not to prosecute him over the Home Office leaks – is making an issue out of the fact that his DNA is now stored on that database.
According to The Times:
The Ashford MP and Tory immigration spokesman is to ask Sir Paul Stephenson, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, to remove his sample from the database. He said: "I believe that no innocent people should have their DNA on the database."
Quite right too.
