Terrorism: Aviation and Border Security

Lord Sheikh: My Lords, as a Muslim I totally condemn any form of terrorist activity. We must appreciate that nearly all Muslims are law-abiding citizens, but I accept that we have a problem with a tiny minority. With regard to profiling, I would like to hear from the Secretary of State that Muslims are not going to be targeted with regard to profiling, about which there has been some talk recently in the press.

Lord Adonis (Secretary of State, Department for Transport): My Lords, as I said a moment ago, there will be no racial stereotyping, so the noble Lord has that assurance.
