Dear Ed,

Thank you very much for your team’s work reviewing our progress on the Covid-19 Infection Survey. We’re taking forward the actions in your review alongside listening to feedback from users of these statistics.

We are committed to high standards of transparency and have today published our arrangements on the ONS website setting out who has access for decision-making during the pandemic. The details can be found here.

This addresses one of your areas highlighted and I will update you on progress.

Yours sincerely,

Iain Bell
Deputy National Statistician and Director General, Population and Public Policy
