Thousands of Australians up for ‘nude’ airport scanners

THEAGE.COM.AU ANDREW HEASLEY, Feb 5, 2010 Despite privacy concerns, figures show tens of thousands of curious Australians volunteered for controversial ‘nude’ security scanners during trials at the nation’s airports.

The figures reveal that vast majority of Australians considered the scans to be equal to, or better than, the current airport security screening process.

Pressure is mounting on the government to fall into line with US and UK security measures.
