Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated
As National Statistician and Registrar General for England and Wales I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question about whether written Ministerial approval is required to authorise the release of death registration data under the terms of the Supply of Information (Register of Deaths) Regulations 2007. (180902)
The regulations required approval by the Chancellor of the Exchequer; the decision on whether to release data to any of the organisations named within the regulations is within the powers of the Registrar General.
