The Information Commissioner has issued a statement in response to the Ministry of Justice’s review of its functions and services (see above). He says: “I am confident that the ICO has a good story to tell….but we must always listen to our stakeholders. I look forward to exploring the best ways of delivering information rights for citizens and consumers while working with organisations and businesses to meet statutory obligations efficiently and effectively”. He urges all those with an interest in information rights and the ICO to contribute to the consultation.
