So the UK’s data watchdog is taking formal action over plans to record all conversations in Oxford’s taxis, in a move that could stop the scheme in its tracks.
It says the scheme may not comply with the Data Protection Act and has given the council a month to explain why it believes the proposal does.
And if the commission is not satisfied with the council’s response, it can issue an enforcement notice demanding the scheme be scrapped.
