In 2002 it submitted a 27 page entry to the Data Protection Registrar stating that it holds files on its opponents. Guardian 1st Nov 2002

It announced on 22 July 2005 that its new chair would be inner-London Labour MP Kate Hoey - the Alliance has been traditionally seen as a Conservative leaning organisation.
