Abstract During the last British winter, a moderately well-off elderly couple in London somehow failed to pay their gas bill. After the routine warnings, the gas company turned off their supply. Interpreting the Data Protection Act of 1998 as prohibiting the divulgence of personal information to a third party without consent, the gas company failed to notify the local social services department that its former customers were now at risk. Eventually, one of the pensioners died quietly of hypothermia and the other of a cardiac event.
