HC Deb 07 March 1988 vol 129 c3W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many representations he has received concerning the workings of the Data Protection Act; whether he has any plans to seek to amend the Act; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

Since 11 November 1987, when the Data Protection Act came fully into force, we have received 15 representations from hon. Members and members of the public of which 11 were requests for information. We have undertaken to review the working of the Act after a reasonable period of experience of its operation, and are considering the form and timing of such a review.
