Government Departments: Data Protection

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission what assessment has been made of the efficacy of data protection practice to safeguard against the unauthorised release of data which have been adopted by Government departments and agencies when subject to audit by the National Audit Office. (170030)

This is not a matter for the Commission. The Comptroller and Auditor General has, by statute, complete discretion in the discharge of his functions, and the Commission therefore does not intervene in the day to day running of the National Audit Office. The hon. Member may wish to write to the Comptroller and Auditor General.
