Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will introduce legislation so that anonymous personal information cannot be disclosed by a registration officer to another person for purposes not connected with the community charge, if the anonymity of the information cannot be guaranteed by that person.

Mr. David Hunt

The collection, storage and transmission of personal data by registration officers are subject to the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1984. No further specific provision is required.
