Prescience

We’ve just remembered the report of the Lords’ Merits of Statutory Instruments Committee following scrutiny of the regulations to bring Contactpoint into being:

However, the Government have not in our view conclusively demonstrated that a universal database is a proportionate response to the problem being addressed. While the Government have taken the need for security seriously, the scale and importance of the scheme increase the risk that any accidental or inadvertent breach of security, or any deliberate misuse of the data, would be likely to bring the whole scheme into disrepute.

Indeed.
