LibLink: Mark Pack – Give people power over the sharing of their data

The Voice‘s Mark Pack has been writing about individual electoral registration for the IPPR’s website:

If I were to move, I would be quite happy to let the gas company, the TV Licensing authority, the local council’s tax department, the electoral registration services and many others know, all in one go.

Other people may well not be happy to do the same – but in the desire to ensure that those who want to keep data separate rightly have their rights respected we have too often overlooked the opportunities to make it easier to share data wherever people are happy for this to happen.

So what should be done? Read Mark Pack’s post in full to find out.

    Paul Barker - Has Nick Clegg really explicitly ruled out working with the DUP??? I'll be glad if he has,but thought he hadn't.

    @David-1 So why not rule out working with Labour? Why not rule out working with every party that’s not as simon-pure as Nick Clegg claims...

    Do you actually have any specifics on the legislation Mr Miliband is proposing, or are you just imagining possibilities based on a headline?
