UIN 72503, tabled on 9 November 2021

The sequencing decision was made following a robust, specialist-led assessment based on the criteria presented when the Government launched this process in May. This is outlined in the Government’s answer on 27th October (60444). Officials have provided feedback directly to relevant clusters, while respecting commercial sensitivity. However, it would be unsuitable for the Department to publish the scores allocated to each cluster, because: the Cluster Sequencing process is ongoing; the Government needs to respect the commercial sensitivity of the clusters’ information.
