UK Data Protection & Digital Information Bill is (for now) no more

Share This Post

The Data Protection & Digital Information (No.2) Bill, the UK government’s attempt to make changes to the EU’s GDPR, was at report stage in the House of Lords, but as the Prime Minister has called a general election, it has now been lost as part of the end of parliament wash-up.

The parliamentary wash-up is a period where the government has just two days to decide whether to try and rush Bills through or abandon them, before parliament shots down (“prorogued”).

The DPDI Bill was one of the Bills that didn’t make the cut, meaning that for now at least DPDI is no longer a thing. It is possible that the next parliament picks it up either from where it got to or in an amended form, or it could be lost forever. We’ll just have to wait and see.

It seems a little ironic that it should fail on 24th May, given 25th May 2024 was the sixth anniversary since GDPR came into force.
