To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the prosecutions made under the Data Protection Act; and if he will give the outcome of the prosecutions.
We understand that 27 prosecutions by the Data Protection Registrar have been completed. Twenty-six of these resulted in fines, averaging £466·67; and one in a conditional discharge. Details are obtainable from the registrar. Some prosecutions have also been initiated by the Director of Public Prosecutions, but they are not separately listed.
