House of Commons
Legislation governing a safe trace app
EDM #490
Tabled 18 May 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House believes that any variations to lockdown restrictions must include a strategy to test, trace and isolate to prevent a new surge in coronavirus infections; notes that the Government plans to roll out a smartphone app to aid contact tracing; believes that for enough people to use the app for it to be effective, the public will need to have confidence that their personal data is safe, and that the app will work effectively; further believes that participation in the app must be voluntary; and calls on the Government to introduce legislation for a safe trace app to provide clear safeguards for personal data collected through the app and by human contract tracers, to prohibit discrimination against people who do not use the app, and to create significant penalties for the misuse of data.
