Yet again we are dealing with confidential personal information. In response to the previous point made on that issue, the Minister sought to pray in aid the fact that the controls over highly sensitive personal health information were even more stringent than in other areas. I simply seek reassurances and guarantees that when information is in the hands of the Government, Government agencies or related bodies, they recognise and take responsibility for its security, given recent events.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 74 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
