Christine O’Neill blogs on our PublicLaw blog about the Information Tribunal’s first hearing in Scotland, following Scottish Borders Council’s appeal against its monetary penalty under the Data Protection Act issued as a result of a data breach by a contractor working on behalf of the Council.

Interesting story carried by the BBC today suggests that (I think for the first time) the Information Tribunal (more properly the First tier Tribunal – Information Rights) is going to sit in Scotland to hear an appeal from a decision of the UK Information Commissioner. As has been widely reported, Scottish Borders Council was fined £250,000 by the ICO in relation to the discovery of pensions records in a supermarket car park.

SBC is appealing against the level of the fine and, it appears, the Tribunal has determined that it should hold an oral hearing in March in Edinburgh or in the Borders. A rare chance to see the Tribunal at work north of the border.
