Local councils call for government funding for GDPR compliance

National Association of Local Councils is concerned complying with GDPR puts financial strain on local authorities and calls on government to help with funding.

NALC chair Sue Baxter has written a letter to digital minister Matt Hancock, highlighting her concerns that complying with GDPR is creating a financial burden for local councils.

In London alone, councils have individually spent up to £300,000 on software, training and consultancy to prepare GDPR, according to a report by think tank Parliament Street.
