The Data Protection Bill was introduced on 13 September. The Bill is intended to create a new data protection framework fit for the digital age, which incorporates the provisions of the EU’s GDPR into domestic law. It builds on existing standards for protecting personal data, in accordance with the GDPR, giving people more control over use of their data, and providing new rights to move or delete personal data.

The EU (Withdrawal) Bill will ensure that the remainder of the GDPR is incorporated into domestic law.

In leaving the European Union, we will bring about an end to the direct jurisdiction of the CJEU in the UK.
