HC Deb 11 April 1986 vol 95 c204W
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.
