"This is a comprehensive piece of legislation that has evolved and developed after much consideration and consultation. Human rights considerations were very much to the fore throughout this process. I was acutely aware of the need to strike an appropriate balance between the use of the DNA database in the investigation of crime in the public interest and of the individual’s constitutional right to fair process, privacy and their good name. I am confident that this Bill, with its many safeguards, particularly in relation to children and protected persons, achieves that balance."?
