Final Report

On behalf of Lord Penrose, I can report that good progress is being made in relation to the warning letters associated with the Final Report. Three batches have been issued. However, the process is not yet concluded. Two further batches of letters have still to be issued. Subject to the team progressing with the warning letter process at the anticipated rate, the Final Report will be published in the autumn of this year. A date for publication will be announced when the warning letters process is complete.
