Insulting, intrusive piece of legislation

Shocking piece of legislation that clearly breaches the human rights and privacy of every family in scotland . We need a full public inquiry to find out why the govt are so keen to disregard our human rights despite the supreme court ruling.

Couldn't agree and support this petition more as if someone shared information regarding my children without my consent I would definately have something to say about it. These acts have an impact on family's lives and health and I've witnessed it.

Well done for highlighting this issue and for standing up to the Scottish Governments half baked attempts at deciding a viable policy on this issue. They have caused untold misery with their actions and distress to children and parents they are supposed to be protecting.

This whole slippery business of extracting personal information needs to be comprehensively stopped. Why not have consent based public services that actually provide what people want instead? That would be a much better proposition for all concerned.

So many families have been abused by unlawful data sharing. Practitioners remain confused to this day and still abuse the law. Who authorised this? Why was this allowed to happen against the data protection act of 1998? Why have the ico not informed organisations they gave out unlawful information in the first place? It has been left to families to correct organisations and bring them back in line with the law. It is not good enough. We deserve answers and those badly affected should be entitled to compensation. This must never be allowed to happen again.
