Scottish Government consultation process

Consultation is important to make good policy decisions. It allows us to ask you for your opinions.

You can look at previous consultations.

All responses to our consultations are looked at and we use this to make decision about policies we want to put in place. We always make the evidence public after each consultation.

Consultations are useful to gather evidence when thinking about a policy but will not address everyone's questions or concerns.
