Amendments made: 112, page 91, line 38, leave out “on request”.

This amendment enables regulations under Part 3 to require a data holder to provide business data without a request being made.

Amendment 113, page 91, line 39, after “trader” insert

“to whom the business data relates”.

This amendment makes clear which trader is being referred to.

Amendment 114, page 91, line 40, leave out “(a “third party recipient”)”.

This amendment is consequential on Amendment 115.

Amendment 115, page 91, line 40, at end insert—

“(1A) In this Part, “third party recipient” means a person to whom a data holder is required to provide business data by virtue of provision made under subsection (1)(b).”

This amendment inserts a definition of “third party recipient”.

Amendment 116, page 91, line 43, at end insert—

“(2A) The Secretary of State or the Treasury may by regulations—

(a) make provision requiring a public authority that is a third party recipient (whether by virtue of those regulations or other data regulations), or a person appointed by such a public authority, to publish business data or to provide business data—

(i) to a customer of the trader to whom the business data relates, or

(ii) to another person of a specified description,

(b) in relation to the public authority, or a person appointed by the public authority to do something described in paragraph (a), make any provision that could be made in relation to a data holder, in connection with business data, in reliance on subsection (2) or sections 69 to 78, other than provision imposing a levy on the public authority or person, and

(c) in relation to a person to whom the public authority is required to provide business data by virtue of provision made under paragraph (a)(ii), make any provision that could be made in relation to a third party recipient in reliance on sections 69 to 78.”—(Sir John Whittingdale.)

This amendment enables regulations under Part 3 to make, in relation to a public authority to whom business data is provided in accordance with such regulations, the same provision that regulations may make in relation to data holders (other than provision imposing a levy on the authority).
