Jenny Willott: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many samples were added to the National DNA Database in each month since it was launched; and if she will make a statement. [156285]

Meg Hillier: It is understood that this question refers to the number of samples taken from crime scenes added to the National DNA Database, since a separate question has been asked on the number of people added. The number of crime scene samples added each month for all police forces since the foundation of the Database in 1995 is shown in the attached table. Crime scene samples are not normally retained on the Database once the crime from which they were taken has been solved. Therefore the number of such samples currently on the database is less than the total number that have been loaded since 1995.
