Re – Your Letter of 14th January 2022

Dear Mr. Hogan,

I refer to your letter received via email on 14th January 2022 and would respond as follows:

The Health and Safety of all colleagues and customers in Marks and Spencer is and continues to be our priority during these challenging times. It is absolutely the case that all our retail colleagues have been at the forefront and served our communities since the start of the pandemic.

You will be aware that all Stores have Lead Work Representatives who meet on a weekly basis with Store Managers and the Store Health and Safety Reps. In addition, all colleagues are kept up to the date with any changing guidelines and recommendations as they are announced by Government.

In addition, I would advise that the Company have and are continuing to follow all safety protocols in Stores as outlined in the Company Protocol Document which you were furnished with in June 2020 along with the Training Programme and Communications Documentation.

We are currently amending the protocol as per the most recent public health advice, I will share the updated copy with you.

Finally, I would advise that the company will continue to provide and adhere to all the necessary safety measures that is required and advised by public health experts.

Yours sincerely
Patrice Ash
Marks and Spencer Ireland Limited
