Jack Saywood, a 14-year-old in my constituency, found that his details were on the national DNA database, although he had committed no crime whatever. It was purely a case of mistaken identity. I was shocked to discover that 24,000 other people were in exactly the same position—all of them children who had never committed a crime. Their details should be removed from the database. Will the Leader of the House ask a Minister to come to the House and tell us when they will be removed?
