Response to the Ministry of Justice’s Call for Evidence on the Current Data Protection Legislative Framework

This response comments on the Ministry of Justice’s Call for Evidence on the Current Data Protection Legislative Framework. It highlights the substantial discrepancies between the rights of individuals to see their own personal data under the Data Protection Act and the rights of any member of the public to obtain official information under the Freedom of Information Act. It also deals with an apparent obstacle to the release under the FOI Act of anonymised statistics derived from personal data.
