Holding answer received on 12 March 2018

Dame Judith Hackitt’s interim report recommended that the Government should restrict the use of desktop studies so that they are only used where appropriate, with sufficient test evidence and where those undertaking the assessment are able to demonstrate suitable competence. The Government will consult on proposals to implement this recommendation shortly.
