On 21 June 2017, the Queen spoke to both houses of the UK Parliament to set out the government’s legislative plans. She stated that “a new law will ensure that the United Kingdom retains its world-class regime protecting personal data”. On this occasion, the government issued a briefing document detailing the points addressed in the Queen’s speech. The government stated that the Data Protection Bill (the Bill) would implement the GDPR, “meeting our obligations while we remain an EU member state and helping to put the UK in the best position to maintain our ability to share data with other EU member states and internationally after we leave the EU”. Other notable elements of the Bill would include a right to be forgotten when individuals no longer want their data to be processed, a new regime for data processing by law enforcement agencies and new powers and sanctions available to the Information Commissioner.
