Information Orders

Part of Data Protection Bill [Lords] – in the House of Commons at 4:00 pm on 9th May 2018.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) This section applies if, on an application by the Commissioner, a court is satisfied that a person has failed to comply with a requirement of an information notice.

(2) The court may make an order requiring the person to provide to the Commissioner some or all of the following—

(a) information referred to in the information notice;

(b) other information which the court is satisfied the Commissioner requires, having regard to the statement included in the notice in accordance with section141(2)(b).

(3) The order—

(a) may specify the form in which the information must be provided,

(b) must specify the time at which, or the period within which, the information must be provided, and

(c) may specify the place where the information must be provided.’—(Margot James.)

This new clause would be inserted after Clause 143. It provides that, where a person has failed to comply with an information notice (given under Clause 141), the Information Commissioner may seek a court order requiring the person to provide the information referred to in the notice or other information which the Commissioner requires for a reason specified in the notice. See also Amendments 57, 58 and 60.

Brought up, and read the First time.
