APGDA announces House of Commons Briefing on Data Protection Bill

1st March 2018

Ahead of the second reading of the Data Protection Bill in the House of Commons on Monday 5th March 2018, the APPG for Data Analytics has produced a full briefing for Parliamentarians.

The report sets out the legal and evidence-base for the legislation, as well as providing a number of recommendations for Parliamentarians. The Data Protection Bill would implement the most significant shift in the United Kingdom's regulatory framework for two decades and has considerable impact on individuals, businesses, and government operations.

The APPG for Data Analytics (APGDA) brought together stakeholders from across the big data and digital technology sectors with parliamentarians, campaigners, policy makers, and academics to produce the briefing paper. The recommendations were developed over two parliamentary roundtables with our Chair and Vice-Chair, Daniel Zeichner MP and Stephen Timms MP. The Group worked in collaboration with industrial and academic partners and includes practical, real-world, cross-party information on this vital bill.

APGDA is committed to open and accountable public policy and have been delighted to work across the sector to produce a briefing that represents the collective views of numerous stakeholders. The Group looks forward to monitoring the progression of the Data Protection Bill through Parliament and to seeing its successful implementation by the Government.
