Consultations outline proposals on a particular issue and ask for responses and comments from people and organisations with specialist knowledge in that area, and from the general public.
The responses we receive help us to ensure that any proposed changes to the law or policies have a real, practical impact.
Please note each consultation contains instructions on how you can respond. These instructions are usually found at the end of the document, but before any appendix pages.
