Bulk Personal Datasets - DfT

S Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Transport

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Transport,

Please consider this a Freedom of Information Act request.

1. Can you please provide a list of the names of each Bulk Personal Dataset held by the Department, and, for each dataset:
a) the purposes for which the dataset is held,
b) the size of the dataset (in terms of either terabytes of disc space, or millions of people, or both),
c) how many copies of the dataset are floating around the department, and the source of that figure (ie whether that figure is as a result of copy control measures, a comprehensive audit, or guesswork)

If any part of the above is not held for any particular dataset, it is sufficient to say that the information isn't held because you don't know.

2. Can you please provide the definition of "Bulk Personal Dataset" that was used to reply to that previous request, and the source of that definition? If it defines "Personal data", can you include the source of that definition, or confirm whether that is section 1 of the Data Protection Act.

Yours faithfully,

S Smith

Department for Transport
