Memo to the Minister 1

14 July 2022

Norton Rose Fulbright, London


Roundtable to enable companies and their advisors, to provide feedback and constructive comments to the DCMS Minister, on the government’s proposals on reforming UK data protection legislation.

Date: Thursday 14 July 2022
Times: 09.00 to 15.00
Location: Norton Rose Fulbright, London
CPE Credits: up to 4

There is a balance to be struck between making the most of Brexit opportunities and risking the UK’s valuable EU adequacy declaration. Of particular interest is the extent to which UK policy decisions would lead to UK diversion from compatibility with the EU GDPR which provides the common framework for companies operating across the European Economic Area.

The government has considered nearly 3,000 comments to its consultation document, Data: A new direction, and published its response and the main lines of its policy decisions on 17 June: Data: a new direction - government response to consultation.

To provide a familiar structure to the discussion, the programme follows the lines of the original consultation document.

This interactive Roundtable is an ideal opportunity for you to gain understanding of how your views on the government’s reforms match those of others. While there might be consensus on some issues of the need for change, opinions might vary on others. By attending this event, you will learn the extent to which you are in the mainstream or an outlier.


The speakers are DCMS policy advisors who have worked on developing government policy and will advise the minister:

  • Elisabeth Stafford, Data Protection Reform Team
  • Emily James, Senior Policy Manager, Domestic Data Protection Policy
  • Gaby Anderson, Policy Advisor, Domestic Data Protection Policy
  • Robin Edwards, Data Protection Reform Team
