Government consultation policy

1.In our 25th Report of this Session,1 we referred to the oral evidence on Government consultation policy that we had taken from Mr Oliver Dowden, CBE MP, Parliamentary Secretary (Minister for Implementation) at the Cabinet Office, on 20 March 2018 (the evidence has been published on our website). 2 On 18 April, we wrote to Mr Dowden about that evidence, in particular about the relationship between the Cabinet Office and other Government Departments in monitoring consultation exercises. We have received a reply of 2 May from Mr Dowden, and we are publishing this correspondence at Appendix 1 to this report.
