Select Committee on Public Administration Second Report


Submitted by the Department of Trade and Industry

With your letter of 9 June you attached a list of PQ answers given by this Department which had been identified by the Table Office as withholding specific information.

I attach a note with provides further responses as to why information could not be provided, relating each case to the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.

I have asked the Parliamentary Clerk to make sure that all officials who draft answers to Parliamentary Questions are aware of the Code of Practice and the need to make reference to the Exemptions whenever appropriate.
