Following on from the loss of discs containing information on 7000 people from Northern Ireland, the Sunday Times has revealed that the DVLA have now lost more information!

According to the BBC, the breach is going to be discussed in Parliament today when the Transport Secretary Ruth "Boy Wonder" Kelly will be providing more information about the loss. At the time of writing, it is believed that the loss does not include Driver's Licence information and actually pre-dates the previous Northern Ireland loss.

The DVLA say it's "historical" I say it's hysterical! This was probably only noticed because of audits done due to the other losses, so in many ways, we should be thankful they've realised. Still, nice to know the DVLA are pushing HMRC to the title of "Department You'd Most Trust To Lose Your Data" in the end of year award ceremonies.
