Alternative release time for National Flu and COVID-19 surveillance reports
Having considered your reasons, I am assured that you have a good understanding of how the statistics are used, and how this will be enhanced through keeping the alternative release time.
You have fully considered the compromise between allowing time for quality assurance and making statistics available as early as possible, and you are seeking to ensure that you can release statistics of suitable quality in a coherent and timely way.
These measures will support a variety of users and uses and enable media queries to be handled effectively.
I am therefore content you have demonstrated the alternative release time will enable these statistics to continue to serve the public good and I approve the request.
