DNA in the UK

The Guardian has a recent piece on a push by some for the state to begin recording everyone's genetic profile that comes into contact with the law. The article includes this gem of reasoning:
Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate, a former president of the Police Superintendents' Association, said the case for including more people on the database was overwhelming. 'If I had my way, the DNA we now take from newborn babies to check for genetic disorders would be added to the national database in the national interest,' Mackenzie writes.
Of course the "national database" would be in the "national interests." Why would anyone question that?
