To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what information the Government Digital Service has received on the known variations between sales notes and logbook estimated fish weights when seeking approval of the catch recording app for fishing vessels under 10m in length; and who was responsible for providing that information.

The purpose of the Government Digital Service (GDS) assessment was to ensure that, during the technical development phase, the project team developing the catch recording app had considered and met the GDS service standard.

Details regarding the known variations between sales notes and logbook did not need to be provided to the GDS assessment panel as they were not relevant to the technical process of designing the functionality of the recording app.
