HC Deb 02 July 1971 vol 820 cc213-4W
Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will take steps to ensure that companies des- troy private and personal data which they receive from persons seeking employment who fill in their questionnaires and who are not ultimately employed by those companies.

Mr. Bryan

I have no power to make such a requirement. This is, however, one of a number of questions about information held by employers which is being looked at by the Committee on Privacy.
