Understanding obstacles to public sector data sharing

The Law Commission has launched a consultation to investigate the root causes of reported obstacles to data sharing between public bodies. The commission’s brief is improving the law, but unusually at this stage they are seeking to establish if there is a case for reform.

See Out-law.com news item or download the consultation paper (pdf, 229KB) from http://lawcommission.justice.gov.uk/docs/cp214_data-sharing.pdf. Runs to 16th December.
