Baroness Jay of Paddington: People of Jewish origin are regarded as a racial group, and as such are protected by race relations legislation. However, the ethnic origin categories used by the Office for National Statistics do not include a separate Jewish category. Since these are the categories used for ethnic monitoring of the distinction awards scheme, it is not possible to identify the proportion of award holders who are Jewish. The discussions with the commission concerned a number of measures to be introduced in the 1998 awards round to secure better data, monitoring of outcomes, representation of ethnic minority consultants on awards committees, and some changes to the criteria for awards.
Baroness Jay of Paddington: The Chairman of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COT) has replied to Professor Beckett's letter. A copy of the reply has been placed in the Library.
Baroness Jay of Paddington: The Chairman of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment could initiate a review of the Committee's previous recommendations on Vitamin B6 if he were convinced that this was necessary.
Baroness Jay of Paddington: The Secretariat of the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COT) have not been provided with the search terms that Professor Beckett used and cannot directly verify his statement which indicated that "many address the issue of safety" and therefore presumably there are others that do not.
