Court of Appeal letter

The Campaign has supported an application to the Court of Appeal for leave to appeal against a county court decision on the right of access to manual files under the Data Protection Act. The court had held that the files in question were not part of a “relevant filing system” and were therefore not covered by the Act. But the judge ruled that even if the files had been covered by the Act, in the exercise of his discretion, he would not have ordered their disclosure in this case, a decision which the Campaign has questioned. (The Court of Appeal has since given leave to appeal.)
