EDF memo on the Government’s proposed ‘new approach to consultation’

In December 2012, the Equality and Diversity Forum (EDF) submitted a memo to the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee.

The Committee is taking evidence on the Government’s ‘new approach to consultation’ announced in July 2012, which is intended to adopt a ‘more proportionate and targeted approach’ to consultation.

The Committee is particularly interested in the appropriate timing and duration of consultation exercises, and the implications for different groups in society of the Government’s expectation that consultation will be ‘digital by default’.

The Committee welcomes views from interested parties, by 30 November 2012, in advance of an oral evidence session with Mr Oliver Letwin, MP, Minister for Government Policy which will take place on December 11.
