HC Deb 30 March 1988 vol 130 c521W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will provide information to the Data Protection Registrar, in a way that does not compromise national security, on the number, scope and extent of the certificates that he has signed under section 27 of the Data Protection Act.

Mr. Eggar

No. It is not necessary for the Registrar, in the exercise of his responsibilities under the Act, to have these details.
