“UK government defends the use of under 16s as covert operatives

“David Davis, the Tory former cabinet minister, has branded recruitment of child spies “morally repugnant”, as he led politicians and human rights groups in condemnation of police and intelligence agencies’ use of the tactic.

The recruitment of children as so-called covert human intelligence sources emerged this week after a House of Lords committee raised the alarm over proposals to loosen restrictions surrounding it.

The secondary legislation committee reported that the home office security minister, had informed it there was ‘increasing scope’ for children to be used to counter crimes such as terrorism, gang violence, drug dealing and child sexual exploitation.”
