Cabinet office minister Hilary Armstrong launches review of how government consults with businesses, the third sector and citizens

Cabinet Office minister Hilary Armstrong has launched a review of how the government consults with businesses, the third sector and citizens when it makes significant decisions.


Interested parties have until 28 September to make their views known, and should visit www.consultations.
gov.uk 
for instructions on how to submit feedback.


The review focuses on improving the quality of government consultation. The government is aiming to improve the effectiveness of consultation by looking at what questions are asked, who is asked, and how feedback can be used.


Armstrong said: “Everyone benefits from good consultation. By listening to concerns from businesses and third-sector organisations about how we consult, we can continue to make improvements.”

Views can be submitted in writing and by using the Cabinet Office’s Have Your Say website.
