Shroff: Bill Provides Consistent Framework
PRIVACY LAW—NEW ZEALANDApril 6, 2012
Privacy Commissioner Marie Shroff on Thursday registered her view on a bill that would let public and private agencies more easily share individuals' personal information, The New Zealand Herald reports. Shroff submitted comments to Parliament's justice and electoral committee, which is considering the Privacy (Information Sharing) 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.
