The Data Protection and Digital Information (No. 2) Bill has received its first reading in the House of Commons, with MPs set to undertake a second reading on Monday, 17 April.
The government intends this new UK version of the GDPR to 'reduce costs and burdens for British businesses and charities, remove barriers to international trade and cut the number of repetitive data collection pop-ups online'.
First introduced last summer, the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill was paused in September 2022, to enable further consultation with business leaders and data experts.
Further information regarding the updated Bill can be found on the government's website.
