UK government expected to present data protection bill

The Department for Culture, Media & Sport confirmed its plans to present its Data Protection Bill to Parliament in early September.

The Bill's primary aim is to ensure that the UK retains the same data protection laws as the rest of the EU once it leaves the EU, scheduled to be in March 2019. The Bill would follow Germany's lead, after the German Federal Parliament in April of this year passed a new German Data Protection Act that adapted current data protection laws to cover derogations from the GDPR's provisions.
