Mr Jamie Reed
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policy of the red risk rating of the care.data programme by the Major Projects Authority.

The ‘red rating’ relates to a review of the programme carried out by the Major Projects Authority in May 2014. A subsequent review undertaken in February of this year reported the care.data programme as Amber/Red reflecting the progress made.
