I appreciate that some people may have concerns about privacy and the extent to which personal information is made available on the internet. I aim to adopt an approach which is sensitive to the privacy of individuals, but which is also consistent with the principles of freedom of information and the wider public availability of data.

I have set out details of this approach on the privacy page, which I hope will provide an appropriate response to the many enquiries and requests I receive in relation to this subject.
