Question to the Home Office

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact of the provisions of the Data Protection Bill on migrants who wish to exercise their right to know (1) what information is held about them, (2) who is processing that information, and (3) why that information is being held or processed.

Answer (Baroness Williams of Trafford)

The provisions in the Data Protection Bill will ensure that while people’s rights relating to data are protected, day by day operations relating to immigration controls are not obstructed and individual rights are balanced against the wider interests of society.
