Database threat to Liverpool's children
Jun 18 2009 by Marc Waddington, Liverpool Daily Post
LIVERPOOL council leaders are challenging the Government’s scheme for a database which will hold information about every child.
The city is one of 17 local authorities in the North- West piloting the ContactPoint system which is designed for child protection.
But last night city council leader Cllr Warren Bradley said as a parent he had grave concerns about the programme.
He said the ContactPoint system was yet another opportunity for data to fall into the wrong hands.
