I have a pensions policy and an endowment with Standard Life. I've just heard that the financial details of 15,000 Standard Life customers have been lost by HM Customs & Revenue. On top of this HM Revenue & Customs have lost more personal data in a much wider breach of security. It is scant consolation that the Chairman of HM Revenue & Customs has taken responsibility and resigned. I suppose it is too much to ask for a Treasury Minister to take responsibility too.
UPDATE: Unbelievable. They have lost 7.5 million records relating to child benefit. There has to be political accountability here.
