The Data Protection and Digital Information Bill is expected to re-enter the UK legislative process, preceded by a short period of governmental engagement with businesses and civil society in relation to possible amendments. Originally laid before the UK Parliament in July 2022, the Bill’s passage through the UK’s legislative process was paused in September 2022 to allow for further consideration following changes to the UK’s governmental leadership. Many businesses and other stakeholders are now considering the Bill with this engagement window in mind.
This briefing analyses key aspects of the Bill and highlights areas that are likely to be the focus of engagement on potential further reform.
