Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
The Data Protection Act only requires organisations to keep data for a reasonable period.
This is commonly accepted as being SIX years.
Therefore anything over 6 years is a matter for each local authority
So if this LA has a longer period this is a matter for them.
But I have not heard of a 75 year retention period
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
