Darren Jones MP asks the government about post-Brexit trade arrangments

Darren asked:

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what assessment she has made of the potential effect of the UK operating only as a member of the WTO on the UK’s preparations for complying with the General Data Protection Regulation; and what key differences exist between the (a) WTO rules in respect of the digital sector and (b) those rules that exist by being a member of the EU.

Matthew Hancock, a minister at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, replied:

The Government is committed to ensuring the highest level of data protection for UK citizens now and in the future. To that end, the Data Protection Bill, as announced in the Queen’s Speech, will be introduced to Parliament in due course.
