UK Government Wants To Bypass Data Protection Act


www.publications.parliament.uk

Clause 152 of the Coroners and Justice Bill, currently being debated by the UK Parliament, would allow any Minister by order to take from anywhere any information gathered for one purpose, and use it for any other purpose. Personal information arbitrarily used without consent or even knowledge: the very opposite of 'Data Protection.' An 'Information Sharing Order', as defined in Clause 152, would permit personal information to be trafficked and abused, not only all across government and the public sector — it would also reach into the private sector. And it would even allow transfer of information across international borders.

** If this is in the wrong place then Mods please move. **

However, this clause is currently being discussed and should it get passed open up a realm of information and access to people who have not been granted our permission to view our data.

It all falls back to the fact we are the 'surveillance' nation, but destroying the data-protection act takes us up a step to real lack-of-control.

Of course, it's all in the name of 'anti-terrorism' but many will smell a rat, but probably won't be able to do anything about it.

Whilst I'm against this, and any needless compromise of my privacy, I have to bring your attention to the fact that they hoping to bring this into law via the recently deceased rather than 'terrorists'.

The paperwork required across various agencies in dealing with the recently deceased can bring additional burdens to those dealing with their departed - this law is intended to to alleviate these worries and allow the passing on of kith and kin to be smoother than it occasionally is.

The concept, as always, seems to be reasonable - but the further reaches it implies are abhorrent and are another example of using differing laws to further erode civility through rambunctious means.
