New Clause 32 - Other data provision

Data Protection and Digital Information Bill – in the House of Commons at 4:15 pm on 29 November 2023.

Alert me about debates like this

“(1) This section is about cases in which subordinate legislation other than regulations under this Part contains provision described in section 66(1) to (3) or 68(1) to (2A) (“other data provision”).

(2) The regulation-making powers under this Part may be exercised so as to make, in connection with the other data provision, any provision that they could be exercised to make as part of, or in connection with, provision made under section 66(1) to (3) or 68(1) to (2A) that is equivalent to the other data provision.

(3) In this Part, references to “data regulations” include regulations made in reliance on subsection (2) to the extent that they make provision described in sections 66 to 70 or (Interface bodies).

(4) In this section, “subordinate legislation” has the same meaning as in the Interpretation Act 1978 (see section 21 of that Act).”—(Sir John Whittingdale.)

This new clause enables the regulation-making powers under Part 3 to be used to supplement existing subordinate legislation which requires customer data or business data to be provided to customers and others.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
