Data breach 'reveals need' for external regulation

Sensitive recording taken without permission

Tynwald must bring its policy on regulating social services in line with the UK.

So says local civil liberties campaigner Tristram Llewelyn-Jones - after it emerged that confidential data on two Island families has been removed from secured premises within government.

Members will be asked to approve a series of recommendations on children and families' services when the court sits next week - including one that UK body OFSTED be appointed to regularly inspect the provision here.

Mr Llewelyn-Jones says recent events have proved greater regulation is necessary.
