HC Deb 27 July 1993 vol 229 c773W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Attorney-General what action he is intending following the Court of Appeal decision in Reginav. Brown of 28 May; and if he will place a transcript of the judgment in the Library.

The Attorney-General

The Director of Public Prosecutions has invited the Court of Appeal to certify that a point of general public importance arises in relation to the meaning to be attached to the words "use" when applied to personal data within section 5 of the Data Protection Act 1984, and to grant leave to appeal on this point to the House of Lords.

No transcript of the judgment of the Court of Appeal is yet available.
