To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many subject access requests under the terms of the Data Protection Act his Department has received; what was his estimate of the number of requests that would be received; what consideration he is giving to the subject access fee charged by his Department as a result; and whether he will make a statement.

My Department has received two requests for subject access under the terms of the Data Protection Act. It did not attempt to estimate the number of requests which might be received, and at present there are no plans to reconsider the level of subject access fees.
