Retention and destruction of samples etc: service offences

‘(1) Section 113 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (c. 60) (application to armed forces) is amended as follows.

(2) After subsection (1) insert—

“(1A) The Secretary of State may by order make provision as to the retention, use and destruction of material obtained in connection with the investigation of a service offence which is equivalent to the provision made by regulations under section 64B, subject to such modifications as the Secretary of State considers appropriate.”

(3) In subsection (3) after paragraph (a) insert—

“(aa) the exercise of functions conferred by an order under subsection (1A); or”.

(4) The amendments made by subsections (2) and (3) apply in relation to material obtained before or after the commencement of this section.’.—(Mr. Campbell.)
