Read the full quote.

Unless they are legally required to.

If the police or Home Office asks, they are ALREADY legally required to.

It was game over before they even begun.

I think it is slightly more complicated than that, because this is about different government departments talking to eachother. If, for example, the Home Secretary had decided that Home Office or Police should never ask for this data, then irrespective of the legal situation, this would not happen. All it takes is a memo.

And it sort of looks like "inform criminal investigations" trumps "protect children’s interests". i.e. They are illegally here so let's send them back to Aleppo...
