Report of the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection.
The Committee had before them the report by the DMCP on Markets Committee Risk and the following matters were raised.
· In response to concerns expressed by a Member that there had been no change in reported risk relating to unloading operations at Smithfield, the DMCP commented that the market is in a congested area and the risk had been reduced from red to moderate amber. The DMCP confirmed his view that risk would be likely to remain in this area whatever measures were put in place, but was managed in an appropriate way. The Chairman asked that officers report back to the Committee with an ‘ongoing thought process’ to reduce this risk.
