Most of the so-called "private" data are collected by electoral register (compulsory for all, web-search available for £2.99).
And I have a strong belief that even if DNA database is open, it'll be used only by the people who have the necessary knowledge and willing to bother (hardly more than 1% of the UK population). Also, forging DNA (main concern for "privacy", I assume), requires a well equipped bio-lab and qualified personnel.
So the objection to allow DNA data collection / storing looks to me like an attempt to obstruct the criminals procesution.
