Oliver Letwin faces investigation after disposing of documents in park bin (http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/oct/14/oliver-letwin-investigation-documents-bin?newsfeed=true)


The office of the Information Commissioner has confirmed it is investigating claims that the Conservative minister Oliver Letwin has been disposing of government documents in bins in a park close to Downing Street.

The revelation that Letwin, David Cameron's chief policy adviser, has been seen throwing away documents in the park (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/2011/10/14/oliver-letwin-caught-throwing-away-secret-papers-in-public-bins-115875-23487379/) on five occasions has sparked concern about potential security risks as well as data protection breaches.

The office of the Information Commissioner is examining whether a lax disposal of the documents could involve a breach of the Data Protection Act.

A spokeswoman said: "We are aware of the allegations and are making inquiries. Keeping personal data secure is a key principle of the Data Protection Act, and the ICO takes any breach of that principle very seriously."

Hmm. Sounds as if his handler has been looking in the wrong bin.

The Tories just defy belief sometimes....

Anyone leaked what they found in the bin?? Was he leaving them there to deliberately leak them?

WTF???

Where does Cameron find them?

Mr Letwin, an Old Etonian former philosophy don, is regarded as one of the most intellectually capable members of the Government, but also one of the least streetwise.
In 2002, his London home was burgled after he let two strangers into the house at 5am.
