The Independent Jersey Care Inquiry has provided a detailed response to the issues raised in the Data Commissioner's Report. It is a matter of regret that the Inquiry did not have sight of the draft report prior to it being submitted to the Chief Minister as this would have allowed the many inaccuracies in the report to be corrected at an early stage. No formal complaints have been made to the Data Commissioner. The Inquiry is satisfied that the data protection systems in place are as robust as is required in handling sensitive material. The Panel do not intend to make any further statement on this matter.
