Sharing information with Yorkshire Water a third party.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Could you please let me know if sharing personal information of claimants to Yorkshire Water is lawful.
Does it breach data protection legislation?
Yorkshire Water informed me that you share the new address of claimants, what information do you actually share?
Can a claimant stop you from sharing their data with third parties or Yorkshire Water?
What legislation gives you the authority to share personal information to third parties without their explicit consent?
What proof of debt if any do you ascertain before making third party deductions from claimants entitlement?
What legislation gives Yorkshire Water the authority to make deductions to benefit without proof of the claimant owing monies, eg ccj,?

Yours faithfully,
MISS ELLEN FISHER
