Children selected to walk through the full body scanners at airports must do so, the transport secretary has said.
Lord Adonis, announcing a consultation on a code of conduct for the scanners, said to exclude children risked undermining the security measures.
Civil rights groups had raised concerns that the resulting images would breach child pornography laws.
The scanners are being introduced after a failed attempt to blow up a plane in the US in December.
The government’s code of practice on the scanners said airport security staff had all been vetted, including a check of criminal and security service records.
