Responses to consultations

Responses to consultations

We pursue the good of all in our society through Jesus Christ. We actively respond to government consultations and are seeking to become more involved in the pre-consultation process. Since 1998 the Government must consult for 8-12 weeks on policy changes before they can be implemented. This can be a useful way to put forward your ideas or to register opposition to government proposals.
