To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 3 March 2020 to Question 21400 on fishing catches, whether the catch recording app was assessed by the Government Digital Service on the basis of the technical functionality of the app only and without regard to other related data systems.

The assessment undertaken by the Government Digital Service (GDS) focused on ensuring that during the development of the catch recording application the Service Standard had been considered and met. The GDS Service Standard covers a wide range of specific elements including understanding users and their needs, making services simple to use and choosing the right tools and technology. It is available to view on the GOV.UK website at: www.gov.uk/service-manual/service-standard. Other data related systems were not reviewed or assessed by GDS.
