Re: Should result in summary judgement...

Gathering data and making it available to others are two different issues.

Making it available to the interested party for them to challenge and correct is sensible. Making it public is not.

I wonder whether the UK government's policy of making the electoral register available is covered by GDPR. Until now, it has been made available to anybody who pays for it, after mandating its collection under threat of severe penalty to the individual if they refuse to supply it.
