Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what access the Review of the Public Analyst Arrangements in England and Wales had to information about the sampling and analysis of food samples held by local authorities; and what restrictions were placed on the publication of that information. [77951]

Mr. Rooker

The Public Analyst Review Team sought information through submissions from interested parties, including local authorities and public analysts, and the Review Team visited a number of authorities and sought information from them directly during those visits. Some of the information relating to their enforcement activities was given in confidence. The Review Report and any non-confidential information gathered has been placed in the Library of the House.
