HL Deb 11 July 1988 vol 499 c701WA
Earl Grey

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why they accept genetic finger-printing for forensic purposes, when they regard the process as "not proven" for immigration purposes.

Earl Ferrers

The Home Office will normally accept DNA evidence in support of relevant immigration applications where the evidence is clear, positive and has been obtained in accordance with the procedural safeguards against fraud and impersonation.
