Department officials have written to all local councils in England asking them to review whether they commissioned forensic hair strand tests for drug and alcohol use by Trimega Laboratories Limited (Trimega) during the period January 2010 to April 2014, and whether any action is necessary to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities. We are continuing to work with local councils to establish the extent to which they used Trimega during this period.
