Subject: [data-sharing] Law Commission report and Royal Stat Soc comment
To: "data-sharing at lists.openrightsgroup.org" <

 For information:

The Law Commission has published their report on the question of reforming
data-sharing legislation today, on which we have just published a news
piece on StatsLife.


This includes some comment from us on the report, as follows: 'We welcome
this balanced and wide-ranging report, which clearly indicates the need for
a comprehensive stock-take of the current needs and frameworks for data
sharing. The Commission found widespread confusion and misunderstanding
around the current statutory framework, and we agree with them that it
leads to "an overly cautious attitude, missed opportunities, wasted
resources and unnecessary delays".
