Report calls for “more joined up enforcement of privacy”

The UK Home Affairs Select Committee has published a report based on the apparent need for “more joined up enforcement of privacy”.

The report has criticised the way communication related data is regulated, stating that the “use, disclosure and interceptions’ of such data is ‘fragmented”.

The Committee is “concerned about the number of Commissioners, each responsible for different aspects of privacy”.

Its recommendations included a call for the government to give “serious consideration to appointing one overall Commissioner, with specialists leading on each separate area.”
