Consultations - have your say

Consultations - have your say

Before changing policy, the Home Office publishes consultation papers.

These set out Government proposals on a particular issue and ask for responses from people and organisations with specialist knowledge in that area.  We also value responses from the general public.

The responses received help to ensure that any proposed changes to the law will have a real, practical impact.

All Home Office open consultation papers are available in the current consultations section of this website.  We welcome your views.

Reducing the burden

The government is committed to reducing the regulatory burden on business, the voluntary sector and front line staff, but to do this we need your help.

We want to receive practical proposals for regulatory simplification from business people and other stakeholders. More information can be found at:


If you have a proposal for regulatory simplification for business, please email us at: simplification@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk
