A January 4, 2010 Guardian article titled "New scanners break child porn laws", cited Terri Dowty, of Action for Rights of Children, as saying, "'that the scanners could breach the Protection of Children Act 1978 [...] They do not have the legal power to use full-body scanners in this way,' said Dowty, adding there was an exemption in the 1978 law to cover the 'prevention and detection of crime' but the purpose had to be more specific than the 'trawling exercise' now being considered."[1]
