It appears that ‘body scanners’ may breach the UK’s Protection of Children Act 1978.
Surely the protection of all passengers & the safety of aircraft is the issue here.
If body scanners provide the level of security that is required to view & detect any concealed weapons, explosives or substances that can cause damage or destruction, then the Children’s Act needs to be amended. Steps must be taken to ensure that all data recorded is safe and not open to abuse.
Terrorist groups must be laughing when they read this kind of ‘political correctness’.
The Israelis have developed a ‘step up’ device which allows shoes to be checked without the need to remove them, saving considerable time at security.
