Does children’s board have data protection?

Giving evidence in public to the Social Affairs Policy Review Committee on December 1 we heard from Minister Robertshaw that the Protecting Children Board (PCB) - the renamed Safeguarding Children Board – currently has no legal basis and that it answers directly to the Council of Ministers.

Also neither Minister Robertshaw nor his acting chief executive, Ms Mellor, were aware if this board was registered under the Data Protection Act.

There is no reason they should have known as it falls outside their department.
