Civil servants never supposed to see their own records

Having worked for the Gov in the past they I know that before you start work they collect up any data they hold on you and lock it up, now this might have changed since my day but I for one cannot understand why.

From this article it is clear that the police are allowed access without what used to be reasonable restrictions and that is something that needs addressing after so many stories of access abuse in the police/judicial system.
