This morning the Minister of State for Digital, Matt Hancock, released a statement of intent for the UK’s new Data Protection Bill. The Bill has already been through a consulting phase and the Minister has set the Bill’s scheduled implementation date for May 2018, clearly aiming to coincide with the 25 May 2018 implementation date of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
