ISPA disappointed lack of consultation on planned data bill

Tuesday 25 November 2014 | 11:22 CET | News
The UK Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) has expressed disappointment that the Home Office did not consult with industry on proposals for a new Communications Data Bill which would include IP matching. The body said it would work with its members to scrutinise and inform the legislation when it is published. IP addresses can generally only be used to identify a subscriber and not an individual. As it argued in its submission to the Anderson Review on future telecom data laws, the Home Office needs to do more to consult with industry on its proposals, ISPA said.
