Equality and Human Rights Commission: Databases
[Official Report, 22 February 2010, Vol. 506, c. 41W.]
Letter of correction from Maria Eagle:
Errors have been identified in the response given to the hon. Member for Peterborough (Mr. Jackson) on 22 February 2010. The £2 million figure quoted for the budget of the Equality and Human Rights Commission for the development of the Equality Measurement Framework tool (EMF) was incorrect and should instead read £200,000.
The full correct answer should have been: (314959)
The Equality and Human Rights Commission budget for the development of the Equality Measurement Framework tool (EMF) is £200,000.
The plan is that no personal data will be stored or used within the context of the framework and because the data will be drawn from existing surveys most of which is already accessible to members of the public there will be no requirement for a privacy impact assessment.
The framework will not be using anonymised census information.
The intention is that data will be drawn from the following organisations: The Office for National Statistics, the NHS, the devolved Administrations, Government Departments, local government and the police force.
