Irish Minister hopeful for EU deal on Data Protection by June

Leading tech journalist Jennifer Baker is joined by Dara Murphy, Irish Minister of State at the Departments of the Taoiseach and Foreign Affairs with Special Responsibility for European Affairs and Data Protection, to discuss the reform of the EU Data Protection Regulation.
