AT least 10 of the giant government databases built or planned by ministers unlawfully breach privacy, according to a report.
The computer registers — including the DNA database, the national identity register, the Contactpoint child protection database and the health service patients’ register – all breach human rights and data protection laws, the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust will say in research released tomorrow.
It argues that they should be scrapped or fundamentally redesigned to take privacy objections into account.
The report, whose joint author, an academic expert on privacy at Cambridge University who is one of the most respected in Britain, warns that ministers are planning to spend a further £100 billion on information technology databases over the next five years while only 30% of big information technology projects succeed.
Claims by the government that the databases make the provision of public services such as health easier are dismissed as “illusory”.
