HC Deb 24 November 1994 vol 250 c260W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the items of data stored on the experimental payment smart card which was used by London Transport buses in Harrow; and if holders of smart cards were informed of all these items of data and of all the purposes for which the data were to be used.

Mr. Norris

The smart cards in use on London Transport's trial in Harrow store the serial number of the card, the name of the cardholder, the validity of the card—for example travelcard for use in zones 2–5—and the date when its validity expires. LT has registered the trial in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1984.
