Kent makes sense

12th February 2010 at 00:00

At the end of his excellent article on the "senseless census" schools are required to fill in, Mike Kent says, "I seem to recall that laptops and CDs containing highly confidential information have a habit of getting left in cabs and trains ..." ("Senseless census strikes back", February 5).

As if to prove his point, page 15 carried a news item headed: "Union loses personal data of 6,000 members." Once again, Mr Kent is spot on.
