§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the forms and information circulated in Wales concerning the Protection of Information Act will be published in both Welsh and English; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Waddington
I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the Data Protection Act 1984. The Data Protection registrar, who is responsible for administering the registration requirements of the Act, is now arranging to have the registration forms translated into Welsh and is considering what further information should be made available in the Welsh language.
§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his Department correctly completed and submitted its applications for data protection registration on time; and if he will make a statement.
