Dear Ministry of Defence,

This is a question regarding national security vetting.

In Scotland information is deleted from the PNC and criminal history system regarding warnings and fixed penalty notices for example.

Therefor I argue that it is totally unethical for the NSV agency to request such information that is no longer held in line with principle 5 of the data protection act. Especially information which is not even classed as a spent conviction.

In the U.K. paticurarly in Police Scotland data protection is strictly adhered to and files are deleted daily.

My question is what systems do the NSV have access to during the vetting process. Please send me a copy of what systems are checked in the criminal convictions and related matteres section of SC or DV clearance.

Yours faithfully,

Brian murray
