Government gives road charging privacy promise

THE Government has issued reassurances that information on drivers collected as part of the implementation of congestion charging in London will not be used by police for unconnected matters.

Transport Minister John Denham said in a written response to a Parliamentary question that the disclosure of information to the police was subject to the Data Protection Act 1998.

He added: 'An individual's details would not normally be disclosed for another purpose unless the consent of the individual is first obtained, or it was required for compliance with a legal obligation, or there is an overriding public interest in disclosure.'
