To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, if he will discuss with the Department of Transport, the DVLA and the trades associations for private car parking companies reviewing the regulations for the passing of information gained from the DVLA Vehicle Keeper Database by private car parking companies to third parties as part of his Department's consideration of its approach to future Government intervention in the area of private car parking companies.
Private parking companies receive DVLA data on the condition that it will only be used to help follow up alleged parking contraventions. It cannot be further processed for any other purpose. The audit by the Information Commissioner’s Office in March 2016, judged the DVLA’s procedures to offer high assurance that processes to mitigate the risks of non-compliance with the Data Protection Act are in place. My Department has no plans to carry out a review.
