Protocol 2 Practice 6 of the Code of Practice for Official Statistics provides for the name and contact details of the responsible statistician to be set out in statistical reports.

The Authority has confirmed that in these specific circumstances it is acceptable, instead, to provide a generic email address and telephone number.
