Cat Smith responds to the Conservative Party racially profiling voters

Cat Smith MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Voter Engagement, in response to the Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham confirming that the Conservatives broke the law by racially profiling 10 million voters in 2019, said:

“The Conservative Party’s illegal misuse of ethnic race data – a characteristic protected by law – is deeply concerning.”

“With the government’s discriminatory Voter ID laws due to come into law this year, such racial profiling by the Party that is in charge of upholding our data protection laws raises serious alarm bells.”
