I am confused. Some of the people who gave evidence to us talked very much about this, although “profiling” may be the wrong word to use. In answer to questioning, they talked about looking at the individual in terms of the risk they pose. They seemed to talk very much about profiling, although, as I said, I am not sure that “profiling” in its full sense is the correct word. It is used in the sense that a person fits certain patterns. I am confused by the Minister’s statement that that is not used now and will not be in future.
