As I made clear in my previous answer in PQ 219289, both the Department for Education and the British Association of Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) are committed to the security of children’s and families’ data. This is a new service and it is crucial that the Department is satisfied that the system is completely secure before launching the pilot. I was fully informed of and subsequently approved this decision.
