Justice and Security

Responses to the Consultation

Below are the submissions for which authorisation to publish has been granted. In the interests of ensuring maximum transparency, the Government is making every effort to secure consent to publish all the responses in full, subject only to necessary redactions in the interests of national security or data protection. However in this consultation, as in any public consultation, responses may be submitted in confidence and the Government is bound to respect that confidence. The Government also, of course, has to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act.  Where consent to publish a response is not forthcoming, we have also seeking consent nonetheless to disclose at the very least the identity of the respondent.

Of these, 4 are individual members of the public and 2 are private companies. An anonymised summary of these 6 responses can be found here.
