§ Mr. Cohen
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many subject access requests under the terms of the Data Protection Act his Department has received; what was his estimate of this number; whether he is reconsidering the subject fee charged by his Department as a result; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Butcher
My Department has received three requests for subject access under the terms of the Data Protection Act. This is in keeping with the low level of applications which was anticipated. The subject access fee has been set at a level which will cover the cost of providing access and I am not reconsidering it.
