Departmental Public Consultation

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice with reference to the answer of 26 November 2008, Official Report, columns 1669-70W, on departmental public participation, when his Department will publish a response to each of the completed consultations still awaiting response. (245175)

Further to my answer of 26 November 2008, the following response papers have since been published by my Department: Pandemic Influenza—guidance on the operation of the coroner system; Confidence and Confidentiality: Openness in family courts—a new approach; and Claims Management Regulation—fee levels for 2009-10.

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) strives to publish its response papers in a timely fashion and will endeavour to publish the other outstanding response papers as soon as possible. The date of publication depends on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the subject matter, the number of responses received and securing clearance by Cabinet Committee.
