Wildlife Database

Volume 450: debated on Monday 16 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs with which organisations his Department’s global wildlife division shares information from its database; on what basis the information is shared; and whether information is shared routinely with any organisations. (94361)

In April 2006, internal changes within DEFRA resulted in the work of the global wildlife division being divided between two new divisions: the wildlife habitats and biodiversity division and the wildlife species conservation division. These divisions hold numerous databases and share information with several different organisations as requested. All such requests meet our obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998.
