The Government has to date, seen no evidence of this practice recurring since the introduction of the Blacklists Regulations in 2010. However, we understand the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is currently investigating some allegations of blacklisting.</p><p> </p><p>We will be paying close attention to the outcome of these investigations, and once they are known we will consider whether any further action needs to be taken as a result.</p><p> </p><p>Individuals who believe they have new evidence of blacklisting should provide this to the ICO so that it can decide whether there are grounds for an investigation using their powers under the Data Protection Act.</p><p> </p> more like this
