framework create new risks, says watchdog
Peers table amendment to switch responsibility for drafting guidance from state to ICO

A set of clauses the government slipped into the Data Protection Bill "go beyond" their stated ambition and "create different risks", the information commissioner has said.

As drafted, the clauses grant government the power to draw up a framework to administer how departments process personal data with only a need to "consult" the commissioner; it doesn't explicitly say it has to heed any advice offered.
