  Mary Coughlan: I understand that the final report on the outcomes of the survey is in preparation by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland and will be published before the end of December. My Department has not been given a copy of the report because the breaches of labelling regulations identified in the draft report were detected at premises other than those for which this Department has responsibility under the service contract with the FSAI.
