I shall support my hon. Friend’s amendment unless the Minister can provide me with a little comfort about a concern that I have. I understand the Government’s objectives and the reasons for their proposals, but the Bill should not conflate statistics, which try to identify general trends, and personal information, which might identify individuals. I hope the Minister will reassure me that that will not happen.
