Social security information-sharing: draft regulations – public consultation<

This consultation seeks views on the introduction of new powers which will make data sharing easier for certain welfare services and social security purposes.


The consultation is aimed primarily at all local authorities across England, Scotland and Wales, including parts of the local authority that deliver Housing Benefit or welfare services. We welcome views from other people or organisations who might also be interested, such as applicants for a benefit or service, or welfare rights organisations. We are happy to receive responses from anyone who wants to comment on the new policy.
