Who we are
Anne Jones, the Assistant Commissioner for Wales, leads our Wales office. Anne joined the ICO in 2003, with a background in libraries, information and IT. She is a graduate of Aberystwyth and Bristol universities, and prior to this role her career was in the higher education, local authority and private sectors.
The Information Commissioner's Office has prepared a Welsh Language Scheme that sets out how we will provide Welsh language services to the public in Wales. The current Scheme was approved on 1 November 2010.
