Volume 488: debated on Monday 2 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 15 January 2009, Official Report, column 871W, on Government Departments: privacy, how many privacy impact assessments for Government projects have been commissioned. (258662)

No central records are kept of the number of privacy impact assessments (PIAs) commissioned by Government Departments. The Data Handling Review mandated that all Government Departments carry out PIAs on new policies affecting privacy; there is no obligation to report these to MoJ.
