Chris - from a PbD perspective, I would have thought that the privacy cost of enabling *any* image retention outweighs the benefits of allowing images to be stored in certain circumstances. A scanner without any kind of storage or outputs is much more permanently privacy-protective than one where software changes could enable images to be more systematically retained.

I see that the government has slipped out with little fanfare the consultation on the code of practice - deadline for comments is 21 June. Chris, are you intending to respond to the consultation along the lines you set out above?

Yes I completely with you Ian at the point that "A scanner without any kind of storage or outputs is much more permanently privacy-protective than one where software changes could enable images to be more systematically retained". It is very useful thing for security.

The fact that the data are not retained improves the privacy position. It still is an invasion of privacy.

Many people are strip searched. There is no personal data processed to do a strip search. Don't fall into the trap of saying there is no privacy problem because no personal data are processed or retained
