Statewatch, bless them, have liberated 630 pages of the four column Data Protection General Regulation text that lists the Commission’s original text, the European Parliament’s changes, the Council of Ministers' version and a fourth column for the compromise that will be imposed on us all.
Assuming agreement by the Council of Ministers in June, it is this 4 column version that goes into forthcoming the secret tripartite negotiations; a practice which is coming under scrutiny by the European Ombudsman. Perhaps the Ombudsman can use this set of negotiations see how secret these important tripartite negotiations really should be.
Obviously I can’t do an analysis of 630 pages here, but I will be doing one for our UPDATE session on May 11th in London.
