Changes to the UK GDPR Shelved (For Now)


With the announcement of UK General Election for Thursday 4 July 2024, the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill has not completed the legislative process before the end of the current parliamentary session and will therefore not become law. 

The Bill would reform the UK’s data protection regime reducing some of the regulatory burden on UK businesses. Our Legal Update has more information about the changes the Bill would introduce.

It is currently unclear if the next UK Government will decide to keep UK’s data protection regime unchanged (and therefore closely aligned with the European Union), revive the Bill in substantially the same form in the next Parliament, or introduce other changes to UK’s data protection regime based on its own priorities.

We will be monitoring and reporting on the election manifestos of the major parties for indications as to likely new data protection legislation in the next Parliament.
