The Finance Act prohibits the secondary use of data but the personal
data falls within the Data Protection Act which I believe then allows
the secondary use of it subject to the exemptions applicable. If it is
argued that Sec 29(X)crime and taxation allows disclosure of council tax
data then it follows that the Local Authority Act 2000 (Well being) and
DP Act  exemption 35(1) (another Enactment), also allows disclosure.

I believe that the use of the data for a legitimate purpose where an
exemption can be proved is acceptable - but be prepared to be legally
challenged. 

Sometimes we have to stick our necks out for the good of all even if we
risk our heads being lopped off!

Regards

Arthur

Subject: Local authorities - data sharing


Can anyone provide something approaching a definitive answer to the
following?  I'd like to think at least that my confusion is shared by
many.

I know the question has been addressed many times on this list, but I'd
like to know if I've missed anything on the insanely vexed question of
sharing Council Tax data within a local authority; specifically customer
relationship management systems (CRMs).  CT information is the closest
thing there is to a complete dataset on residents.  If sharing the data
in order to implement the CRM must always be considered ultra vires, how
can councils implement e-government.  Does this not fly in the face of
Best Value and joined up government?  (I thought Chinese walls were a
*bad*
thing?)  As I understand it, the data cannot be shared, even *with*
consent.  Section 111 of the Local Government Act 1972 seems to be no
help here.

So ... is there anyone out there who has implemented a CRM and addressed
these seemingly insurmountable problems?  I'd very much like to hear
from you.
