My Lords, I do not want the noble Earl to get a false impression in any way. It will be for the Information Commissioner to decide whether he needs to undertake some particular form of review. I have indicated that the procedures are in place for him to talk to a nominated commissioner, so that he can form that view for himself. I would not like to be taken as having offered any assurance that that is what he will do. The Information Commissioner is—rightly—his own man.
