Explanatory Memorandum to the Draft Model Bill on the Protection of Personal Information and the Recommendation From Senior Officials to Law Ministers

At the 2002 Commonwealth Law Ministers and Senior Officials Meeting in Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Senior Officials agreed that the Model Bill on the Protection of Personal Information needed more reflection on the balance between privacy and the legitimate needs of governments in respect of law enforcement and security. Senior Officials therefore recommended that Law Ministers refer back the matter for further consideration and asked the Secretariat to prepare an amended draft in light of written comments from governments. On the basis of this request, the Commonwealth Secretariat sought expert views from the UK Information Commissioners Office.
