ENGAGE: GETTING ON WITH GOVERNMENT 2.0 (DRAFT), paragraph 174

This is good to see. However, I would note that simply anonymising data by stripping names, addresses etc, is insufficient in many cases. Without the use of some privacy protection techniques (of which there are plenty), I suggest that a very significant portion of PSI, such as statistics based on customer records, would be classified as exempt. Having clear guidance on what constitutes an acceptable exemption, as well as how privacy protection methods (aka disclosure control) can be used to create “safe” output will be important.
