The Commissioner’s report ‘What price privacy?’ (HC 1056, session 2005-06, ISBN 0102937672) exposed an extensive illegal trade in confidential personal information. Events since publication have further highlighted this illegal trade, and this first six month progress report details some examples. It also lists the publications identified from documentation seized during Operation Motorman.

This paper was laid before Parliament in response to a legislative requirement or as a Return to an Address and was ordered to be printed by the House of Commons.
