What these notes do
1 These Explanatory Notes relate to the Commons Amendments to the Data Protection Bill [HL] as brought from the House of Commons on 9 May 2018.
2 These Explanatory Notes have been prepared by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in order to assist the reader of the Bill and the Commons Amendments, and to help inform debate on the Commons Amendments. They do not form part of the Bill and have not been endorsed by Parliament.
3 These Explanatory Notes, like the Commons Amendments themselves, refer to Bill 153, the Bill as brought from the Lords and first printed for the Commons.
4 These Explanatory Notes need to be read in conjunction with the Commons Amendments and the text of the Bill. They are not, and are not meant to be, a comprehensive description of the Commons Amendments.
