  1. Already approaching 150,000 https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/104471 The one for Hunt is approaching 1/4 million https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/104334 http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/petition-calling-for-no-confidence-vote-in-david-cameron-passes-100000-threshold-and-could-be-a6724791.html
  2. LOCAL authorities are being suspended, and in some cases permanently barred, from accessing the information held on vehicles and drivers at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), because of constant abuses of the system and flagrant mis-use of data, in complete contradiction to DVLA’s own rules and those of the Data Protection Act. ON 14th May at the Local Authority Civil Enforcement Forum (LACEF)annual conference in Leicester Mr Mike Butler; DVLA Data Sharing Manager gave a speech about the local authorities and their request to DVLA for keeper records. Mr Butler stated the following: “More than 150 councils have been barred at some stage because they have breached motorists’ privacy.We have been warning councils over unlawful spying using anti-terror legislation.” He reiterated the basic rules for local authorities: They can only access DVLA data if it is linked to the offence (usually parking). There must be hard evidence – not a suspicion of wrong-doing. Local authorities must already have the registration number of the vehicle – they cannot ‘fish’ the DVLA records. Local authorities must have a proper audit trail in place. Correct storage and retention of data is important. Mr Butler explained: “With enquiries from local authorities, we experience some serious and some more commonly occurring issues.” These include: Unable to evidence validity of enquiry Incomplete or no audit trail Gathering information for intelligence purposes Personal data retained from erroneous enquiries Altering date of event to obtain keeper details Unauthorised enquiries made through intermediary Absence of a data retention policy Making enquiries without reasonable cause to information Files containing personal data not adequately secured.
