Prurient questions about sexual matters

Reading through the Home Office’s response to a recent Home Affairs Select Committee, this jumped out at me:

The Home Office does not permit caseworkers to ask prurient questions about sexual matters or require applicants to produce sexually explicit material in support of their claim.

This is somewhat questionable given the contents of some interviews, as recently picked up by and covered in The Guardian.
