I'm not quite sure that I believe what I've just read.

The section of this guidance on disclosing information about a violent 
warning marker to other organisations says:
"However, where there is a good reason for providing the information to 
another organisation, for example, to alert them to the potential risk to 
their staff, this will be justified even though no Schedule 3 condition 
obviously applies. In these cases, our focus is on whether the processing is 
justified and not unfair."

In other words the Information Commissioner is issuing official guidance 
which says it's OK to process sensitive data without meeting a Schedule 3 
Condition.  I know, you know, we all know, that Schedule 3 doesn't work in 
practice, and that there are plenty of reasonable actions involving 
sensitive data which don't meet a Schedule 3 Condition, but it's a 
completely different matter to have this confirmed in official guidance from 
the Commissioner.

When might we expect an amendment to the Act, either removing Schedule 3 or 
adding some more sensible additional conditions?  And in the meantime, how 
do we know what else we can do with the Commissioner's blessing which, on 
the face of it, breaks the law?
