Note from Stewart Dresner, Privacy Laws & Business:
"I stated in the podcast that retaining personal data for its purpose, in this case for Covid-19 tracing, (the purpose limitation principle) is a longstanding principle going back to the UK’s Data Protection Act 1984. I wrote an article in The Economist  in 1987 reflecting the importance of this principle by referring to the first use of a search warrant by the Data Protection Registrar [the regulator] to investigate a part-time policeman who was suspected of using the Police National Computer to check up on the boyfriend of his daughter. A similar case involving a policeman, who worked part-time as a debt collector, led ultimately to a decision in the UK’s highest court referenced as R. v. Brown [1996] 1 AC543 on interpretation of the Data Protection Act 1984 Section 1 (7)" http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1984/35/section/1/enacted
