MPs propose new safeguards for Government uses of personal data: “A Parliamentary committee has called on the Government to be more transparent about its uses of personal data and to adopt ‘a principle of data minimisation.’ Its report includes safeguards it recommends to avoid the UK becoming a surveillance society.”
The report entitled A Surveillance Society? is available here in html format, and here as a 119 page PDF file. The Oral and Written Evidence submitted to the Committee is also available as a PDF file.
