This chapter discusses the historical evolution of data retention legislation int he UK and in the EU till the adoption of the UK IPA, focusing on the UK legislation concerning data retention as opposed to interception or access. The chapter argues that the challenges, which killed the Data Retention Directive and then the UK’s DRIPA, are still very much alive, and may yet invalidate parts of the UK’s new IPA.
