    Of recent HMRC have give out personal information of single parents of the UK to a company called Concentrix, an American based corporate type company, most of these single parents have had their child tax credits stopped, notice the word child in the claim.

    Concentrix unlawfully have this data protected information which HMRC gave them breaking our trust in our own government.

    There is no law against passing personal data to a contractor or other body engaged in a similar relationship. The data protection standards apply equally to the contractor as to the parent organisation.

    A lot of contractors carry out work for HMRC both individually and as companies. Anyone carrying out such work is governed by the Official Secrets Act and the Data Protection Act in the same way as anyone directly employed by HMRC.

    Most government departments are hiving out work to private companies under the guise that it is more cost efficient. In almost every case it has since been proven that it is not more cost efficient and the quality of the work carried out by the private companies was not of the quality expected.

    Unfortunately pretty much every government department is run by a bunch of donkeys. Everywhere you look throughout the Civil Service you see people in charge who have messed up elsewhere and are brought in by their mates in the government. It is the worst "jobs for the boys" conspiracy you will ever see.
