Guidance on the application of GDPR to claimant consent

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I request a copy of any current DWP guidance to staff concerning the application and relevance of the GDPR rules to consent given by claimants for third-party advisers to act on their behalf and to request information about their claims, and the limits that GDPR places upon that consent.

If model/template responses to third parties have been provided to staff, I request copies of these also.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Dutton
