You can order a printed copy of the consultation document online. If you would prefer to request a copy by telephone, phone 0845 015 0010.


Once the consultation deadline has passed and we have analysed the responses, we will put a copy of our Government Response on the consultation's page on this site - you will find this by clicking the Closed with Response link in the navigation.  We aim to do this within three months of the date the consultation closed.
