STRIP-SEARCHING OF CHILDREN

That this House is appalled that in five years 4,638 children between the ages of 10 and 16 years were strip-searched by Metropolitan Police officers; understands that this can require searches of body cavities, including intimate areas; notes that police are allowed to do this if they suspect the person is hiding Class A drugs or an object that could cause harm; further notes that permission for the search need only be given by a police inspector; and calls on the Government to require an independent adult to be present when these searches are carried out.
