    Privacy Commissioner Supports Information-Sharing Bill

    Apr 11, 2012
    The New Zealand Herald reported that Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff submitted comments on a bill that would let public and private agencies more easily share individuals' personal information. Shroff submitted her comments to Parliament's justice and electoral committee, which is considering the Privacy Bill. "The bill has strong and practical safeguards, which are absolutely vital, and in my view, they all interact together and are all necessary. Taking one away would potentially spoil the nicely balanced framework that we have," Shroff noted, adding that her office would be involved in reviewing and monitoring sharing arrangements.
