Governments should be forced to report on the impact of laws which affect citizens’ privacy after they have come into force, telling Parliament whether those laws have worked and what privacy rights have been infringed, the UK’s privacy watchdog has said.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has told a Parliamentary committee that there should be formal post-legislative scrutiny to make sure that a Government’s claims about the privacy impact of proposed laws are consistent with how the law is actually used.
