Support For Effective Data Protection

EDM number 990 in 1992-93, proposed by Harry Cohen on 02/12/1992.

That this House notes the continual Press interest in the unauthorised disclosure of personal data concerning the financial affairs and drinking habits of the Chancellor of the Exchequer; notes that over the weekend similar details of other Ministers were obtained and printed by the Sunday newspapers; notes that one Home Office minister was quoted as being 'appalled that inquiry agents have access to financial records of individual people'; calls on the Government to reverse its opposition to the strengthening of the Data Protection Act; supports the revised proposal for a Data Protection Directive from the European Commission COM(92)422; and believes that proposals for the inclusion of manual records containing personal information, the need to obtain consent from data subjects for some uses or disclosures of personal data, the provision of more effective powers of investigation by the Registrar, and the additional rights for data subjects over their personal data, are essential to preserving privacy in a modern day democratic society.

This motion has been signed by a total of 52 MPs.
