Original consultation

We want your views on how we can use the Act’s powers to share data.

Consultation description

The Digital Economy Act 2017 introduces information and data-sharing powers for public bodies to improve delivery of public services and to reduce fraud and debt against the public sector. For a public body to be able to share information under the act, they need to be named in the legislation.

We are consulting on

  1. the proposed list of public bodies (and bodies which provide services to public bodies) the Welsh Government intends to name
  2. objectives for data sharing that the Welsh Government could set for Wales in the future.
