Natasha's Law Breaches

Stella made this Freedom of Information request to Harrow Borough Council Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Stella to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Harrow Borough Council,
I am seeking data on the number of businesses who have breached the allergen labelling restriction known as 'Natasha's Law'. As you will be aware, 'Natasha's Law' required businesses to provide full ingredients and allergen information on food pre-packed for direct sale from 1st October 2021.

I believe there is a strong public interest for this information to be published.

Please can you supply the following information:

1. The number of businesses which breached 'Natasha's Law' since 1st June 2023.

2. The penalty for the breach. If the punishment was a fine, please outline the value of the fine.

3. The name that the offending business traded under, and its address.

4. A breakdown of the business type (supermarket, convenience store, retailer, restaurant, and so on).

5. Copies of enforcement letters sent to businesses breaching 'Natasha's Law'.

Ideally I would like these figures broken down month-on-month

Yours faithfully,

Stella

Harrow Borough Council

Dear Stella
 
 
Thank you for your FOI request received on 20 November 2023.

Although you have provided an email address, you have only signed off this
FOI request with your first name, so before we can proceed any further
with your request, we require a full name.

According to the Information Commissioner's office (ICO), they state:

 1. Any variation of the requester's title or first name combined
with their surname (e.g. Mr Smith or John Smith) will be
sufficient to meet this requirement. However, a first name or
surname provided in isolation, or a set of initials, will not.

Once your full name is received, I or another colleague will be able to
log and assign your case to the relevant department for action.

Please re-send your request to: [1][Harrow Borough Council request email] 

Regards

Information Governance Team
