Response
I can confirm that The National Archives does not hold this information.

Our remit is to oversee the publication of UK legislation in enacted and revised formats. We do not make legislation or advise on legislative or administrative measures. We are therefore unable to assist you with this matter.

Your Freedom of Information request is better directed at the department responsible for this particular piece of legislation. In Acts, this is usually to be found in the Explanatory Notes, and in this instance it says that the legislation was drafted by the Department for Health and Social Care: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2020/7/notes/division/1/index.htm.

We will not be forwarding your request so you will need to contact them directly at:

Ministerial Correspondence and Public Enquiries Unit
Department of Health and Social Care
39 Victoria Street
London
SW1H 0EU
United Kingdom
