Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Amendment declared lost.

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Eamon Ryan: It is certainly not our intention in drafting the amendment that in every single public service transaction with the State, whether with the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, TII or others, people would repeatedly have to be asked for consent. I fear that we are doing something akin to what is happening in the United Kingdom where broad and sweeping capabilities in...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Patrick O'Donovan: Deputy Eamon Ryan's amendment is very clear. It refers to "such disclosure, only where expressed consent has been sought and received". We would probably need a database the size of County Cavan to hold all of the notional consents. I return to the original point. Who is going to consent in this Shangri-La to having his or her information shared between the Department of Employment...

Mick Wallace: No. The Minister of State-----

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Patrick O'Donovan: The Bill will give legal certainty in the services already being provided. The amendments passed mean that we are going to have a problem. Services being provided are being undermined. People need to start to take this issue more seriously.

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Mick Wallace: That is misrepresenting our position.

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Patrick O'Donovan: I know that it is the night before the break-up before Christmas, but this is a very important Bill. Public services could, potentially, be undermined by some of the carry-on this evening. This is very serious.

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: We must-----

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Clare Daly: The proposer of the amendment has a right to reply.

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: That is correct. The Deputy moved the amendment.

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Clare Daly: I think the tone adopted by the Minister of State is unfortunate because some Members on this side of the House and in the Seanad have spent a considerable number of hours preparing and working on this issue which we take incredibly seriously. A number of the points made by the Minister of State are irrelevant, while some are very worrying. Let us take the back-to-school allowance scheme....

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Jonathan O'Brien: It is my understanding - perhaps we can receive some clarification on it - that the default position is that data are shared and that all the amendment is looking for is a mechanism to be put in place to allow people to opt out if they so choose. That is my understanding of the wording of the amendment. If that is the case, somebody should have that option. If people do decide to opt out...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Mick Wallace: On the penalty points issue, I have made the point that Article 6 of the GDPR lists various exceptions to the consent requirement. One such exception is the processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. It is not an issue. The Minister of State is protesting a little much. He has raised...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Clare Daly: Most of the contribution of the Minister of State was a straw man in building up a case that we were not making. The rationale behind his argument appears to be that when people give their data to one public service provider, they should not be allowed to opt out of having that data shared with another public service provider. That is just nonsense. Most people will agree to the convenient...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Clare Daly: At the heart of the amendments is the idea that the once-only collection of data that the Government is proposing seems to be justified solely on the grounds of so-called efficiency. It is not really clear for whom it is efficient. If one boils things down to basics, the Bill has two main goals, namely, to provide a legal basis for public bodies to share data among each other and to set...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Eamon Ryan: There was an interesting lecture last week by Marc Rotenberg from a US privacy NGO called the Electronic Privacy Information Center. He spoke at a free legal aid conference about the issue of data privacy. It was a very interesting presentation, at the end of which he asked what star we followed because it was highly complex and difficult to get this matter right. It was always going back...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Patrick O'Donovan: I shall speak first to amendments Nos. 6 and 9. The two amendments, in the names of Deputies Wallace and Clare Daly, propose that a person be allowed to opt out of the once-only principle that a person need provide details only once for a public body. The once-only principle is only one of a list of purposes in section 13 of the Bill, at least one of which must be engaged for the data...

Data Sharing and Governance Bill 2018 [Seanad]: Report Stage (18 Dec 2018)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Amendments Nos. 6, 7 and 9 are related and may be discussed together. I ask that Deputies who are not participating in the debate leave the Chamber in an orderly manner.
