Will the Government listen?
Mark Wadsworth points out that two bodies set up by the Government to advise the Government on drugs have been ignored by the Government!
I wonder what will happen to the conclusions of the Human Genetics Commission and its Citizen’s Inquiry into the National DNA Database?
There should be an independent body with broad membership, constituted by statue [sic] specifically to oversee the NDNAD. It should be a function of this body to keep the public informed about the NDNAD and it should produce an annual report. …
A majority of participants concluded that samples should be destroyed and profiles removed from the NDNAD when a suspect is not proceeded against or an accused person is not convicted at the conclusion of criminal proceedings.
In other news, the Government has been selling our DNA, without our consent or knowledge. Where is the debate?
