Jon Baines comments on the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill

Posted on 20 July 2022

Senior Data Protection Specialist Jon Baines has provided his thoughts on the Government’s recently published Data Protection and Digital Information Bill. 

Jon noted that the Bill’s implementation could mean UK data law increasingly diverges from EU law, sharing his thoughts with The Daily Express, Infosecurity Magazine and The FinTech Times.  

He explained: “With the multiple amendments proposed in the Bill, the UK GDPR is starting to look quite different to its European cousin. And the more the two regimes diverge, the more there is a risk that the EU might question whether it still considers the UK to have an “adequate” regime for the purposes of data transfers.”
