Where would that leave them from a data protection perspective?  If a CSP is retaining data which would not be disclosable under RIPA S.21 (ie, isn't picked up by S.21(2)(b) "the conduct is in accordance with, or in pursuance of, the authorisation or requirement.") does DRIP provide them with cover against a claim that they are maintaining data unfairly in DPA terms?  Surely, if the purpose of DRIP is to enable S.21 to work "properly" (for some value of properly which is a different debate), then it can only cover data which would be released subsequent to an S.22 request?
