To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will enable compensation claimants represented by Vendside Ltd. to have access to their files. (92787)

[holding answer 11 October 2006]: If the Department received a file access request from a compensation claimant, the Department would reach a decision as to whether to disclose taking account of its legal obligations. The Department would expect only to receive such requests where claimants had tried and failed to obtain that information from their representatives.
