The Government has launched its review of consultation policy:
This document forms the centre piece of the Cabinet Office's review of central government consultation policy.
The consultation is aimed at anyone with an interest in responding to government consultation exercises, from those who regularly respond to the Government's consultations to those who might be interested in doing so. These might include business organisations, voluntary and charitable sector organisations, campaigning bodies, trades unions, citizens, etc.
The Cabinet Office wants to hear views on how central Government departments and their agencies currently consult, how their consultations can be improved, and how Government policy on consultation could bring about these improvements.
The HSC urges you to take this opportunity to participate in the consultation.
The consultation runs until 28 September 2007.
