Census update

Well, what do you know – the worst fears we have of government departments being responsible for the census data and ensuring that it is kept safe and secure have been realised.

A report in The Telegraph dated 17th April 2011 tells us that the Ministry of Defence, the Department of Health and the Department for Communities and Local Government have all published sensitive documents on-line but failed to “redact” sensitive information which resulted in information that should have been kept secret has entered into the public domain.

This is clear evidence that our census data is not as safe as the ONS would have us believe and that quite simply, the government cannot be trusted to protect us in the way they claim.  This information should be used when giving any reply to the ONS.
