(a)     require that any requirement to destroy biometric information by virtue of the [Regulations] also applies to copies of the information, and

(b)     require the [Minister] to take all reasonable steps to ensure –

(i)      that data held in electronic form which relates to biometric information which has to be destroyed by virtue of the [Regulations] is destroyed or erased, or

(ii)      that access to such data is blocked.

(7)     But a requirement to destroy biometric information or data is not to apply if and in so far as the information or data is retained in accordance with and for the purposes of another power.

(b)     requiring such a certificate to be issued within the period of 3 months beginning with the date on which the request for it is received by the [Minister].

(9)     Section 6(6) applies to [Regulations] under this section as it applies to [Regulations] under section 5(1).”

“144A    Use and retention of fingerprints etc.

(1)     Section 8 of the UK Borders Act 2007 (power to make [Regulations] about use and retention of biometric information) applies to –

(a)     fingerprints taken by virtue of section 141, and

(b)     biometric information taken by virtue of [directions] under section 144,

as it applies to biometric information provided in accordance with [Regulations] under section 5(1) of that Act.

(2)     Regulations made by virtue of subsection (1)(a) must require fingerprints taken from a person (“F”) by virtue of section 141(7)(f) to be destroyed when fingerprints taken from the person whose dependant F is are destroyed.

(3)     Regulations made by virtue of subsection (1)(b) must make equivalent provision in relation to biometric information taken by virtue of any provision of [directions] under section 144 which is equivalent to section 141(7)(f).”
