The hon. Lady is so completely wrong that it defies belief. The hon. Member for Barrow and Furness, who was legless at the time, was taken away for a different security procedure precisely because he had crutches on and therefore would set off the machines. To allow everybody else on the plane to feel secure, he had to undergo a special security check. This is what happens. It is not special profiling or discrimination; it is just security.
