Stop Clause 152

I spent Saturday at the Convention on Modern Liberty; I shall be writing about it at some point, but of immediate importance is their campaign to stop clause 152 of the Coroners and Justice Bill, which is currently before Parliament.

Clause 152 allows government departments, bodies and agencies to share data - our information - between them without our consent, thereby dismantling the Data Protection Act.

It is the first step in what the No2ID campaign calls "the database state".

Please write to you MP - you can do this online through Write To Them, telling him or her that you *refuse your consent* to the arbitrary sharing of your information under any ‘Information Sharing Order’ and that you want him or her to vote to have Clause 152 of the Coroners and Justice Bill (currently being debated in Parliament) *completely removed* from the Bill.

This is important; please do it.
