UK decision to deny EU citizens access to data challenged in court​

Lawyers say blocking right to records could lead to Home Office errors going unchecked.

The government has been taken to court over its decision to deny European citizens the right to access data the Home Office holds on individuals in immigration cases.

In a high court judicial review, campaigners for EU citizens allege that a clause in the Data Protection Act 2018 unlawfully excludes them from rights they would otherwise hold to access private data held by third parties.
