Section 62: Annual Report

339.This section provides that the Adjudicator must publish an annual report after the end of each reporting period and send it to the Secretary of State (subsections (1) and (4)). The first reporting period will begin when section 41 comes into force (i.e. when the Adjudicator is established) and end on 31st March. Subsequent reporting periods are each twelve-month period after that.

340.The annual report must include summaries of arbitrations and investigations conducted by the Adjudicator, the use of enforcement powers, and cases where the Adjudicator has exercised functions in relation to the offer of a Market Rent Only option the provision of parallel rent assessments by pub-owning businesses under the Pubs Code. Where the use of enforcement powers has included recommendations, the report should include an assessment of whether these have been followed (subsections (2) and (3)).

341.Each annual report should therefore contain information which is useful to the Secretary of State in reviewing the Adjudicator under section 65, as well as to users of the Pubs Code generally. Subsection (5) requires that the Secretary of State lay a copy of the report before Parliament.
