0 comments

The UK government has once again lost confidential data, this time of a Cabinet minister's computer was stolen. 

The desktop PC was stolen from communities secretary Hazel Blears on Saturday. There was government data on the PC's hard drive.
The incident follows two losses of data last week, when two security officials both left confidential documents on trains.
Last year, the UK government faced a major scandal when two disks' worth of confidential data on children were lost after being entrusted to the post.
