Dear Livestock and Meat Commission for Northern Ireland,

In 2010 an investigation was conducted into the activities of [DARD CIS] by Deloitte consultants as instructed by the DARD PS Mr Gerry Lavery. [potentially defamatory material removed].

1. Can you confirm if the LMC uses any of the DARD CIS resources?

2. If so, can you confirm the legal basis enabling DARD CIS to conduct business on behalf of the LMC and the annual cost of this service for the last financial year?

3. If the LMC do use this DARD service can you clarify if you have taken any action to review any agreement with DARD CIS in light of the investigation findings of the Deloitte investigation in 2010? And the subsequent findings and action taken as a result of any review.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Anderson
