ICO statement on the Draft Communications Data Bill

An ICO spokesperson said:

“We are waiting to see the detail of what is proposed, including any role envisaged for the Information Commissioner. We shall then have to judge whether the Commissioner’s current powers are adequate for the task or whether additional powers and resources will be needed. It remains our position that the case for this proposal still has to be made, and we shall expect to see strong and convincing safeguards and limitations to accompany the Bill.”
