FOI and the GDPR: Uncomfortable Bedfellows?

Registered social landlords (RSLs) up and down the country are working hard to ensure that they are ready for freedom of information (FOI) for 11 November 2019. The interface between FOI and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an issue that is likely to come up frequently for RSLs when handling and responding to FOI requests involving personal data. I have spent a fair proportion of my time over the last 7 months discussing FOI with RSLs and working with them on their preparations. One of the issues that has come up over and over again is the link – or rather the inevitable conflict – between FOI and the GDPR. While some may have hoped that the GDPR was done and dusted in May
