§ Mr. Cohen
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what records will be kept by the Inland Revenue when personal data are disclosed to it via the non-disclosure provisions of the Data Protection Act; and what written statement will be sent to the data user by the Inland Revenue to show that the disclosure of personal data was by that route.
§ Mr. Moore
Disclosure to the Inland Revenue may take place if either that Department is shown in the registration entry of a data user as an organisation to which data might be disclosed or the data are exempt from the non-disclosure provisions. It is not intended to retain statistical records of receipts of such data. The data user will be aware of the circumstances under which a disclosure is made.
