To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what guidance the Court Service has issued on the practice of file-sealing in cases involving alleged breaches of (a) privacy and (b) duty of confidentiality. (292089)

I am told there has been no guidance issued by Her Majesty's Courts Service (HMCS) nor any process that would involve the courts in file-sealing. I have also been informed that HMCS does not hold any information about Privacy or duty of confidentiality cases.
