Any legislation required for the introduction of postcodes will be brought forward in the context of postal legislation or other relevant legislation generally. I have not had contact with the Data Protection Commissioner since the decision by Government approving the postcode implementation process but contact will be made as necessary in the context of advancing consideration of legislation.
