Everybody (member or not) must have access to the register of members
of the company at the registered address (section 116 of the Companies
act 2006). Thus the membership can have no expectation of privacy. It
would seem a little odd to prevent members of the board from checking
that the register is correct.

This does mean that you should separate out the information you need
to include in the register and the other information (e.g. email
addresses) you may hold on members. Especially anything that could be
subject to the data protection act. You may consider limiting access
to that information.
