Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter I am aware that the Article 29 Working Group, the European Data Protection Supervisor and other interested parties have submitted views on aspects of the Commission’s proposals to update the Union’s data protection standards. Both the Chairman of the Working Group and the Supervisor have already presented their views to member state representatives in the relevant working group. Their submissions will, therefore, inform the working group’s consideration of the Commission’s proposals.
