Next steps in the consultation process
Where respondents have given permission for their response to be made public, and after we have checked they contain no potentially defamatory material, responses will be made available to the public through Citizen Space. If you use Citizen Space to respond, you will receive a copy of your response through e‑mail.
Following the closing date, all responses will be analysed and considered along with any other available evidence to help us. Responses will be published where we have been given permission to do so.

Scottish Government consultation process
Consultation is an essential part of the policy‑making process. It gives us the opportunity to consider your opinion and expertise on the proposed area of work.
You can find all our consultations online at Citizen Space. Each consultation details the issues under consideration, as well as a way for you to give us your views, either online, by e‑mail or by post.
Consultations may involve seeking views in a number of different ways, such as public meetings, focus groups, or other online methods such as Dialogue.
Responses will be analysed and used as part of the decision making process, along with a range of other available information and evidence. We will publish a report of this analysis for every consultation. Depending on the nature of the consultation exercise, the responses received may:
- indicate the need for policy development or review;
- inform the development of a particular policy;
- help decisions to be made between alternative policy proposals; or,
- be used to finalise legislation before it is implemented.
While details of particular circumstances described in the response to a consultation exercise may usefully inform the policy process, consultation exercises cannot address individual concerns and comments, which should be directed to the relevant public body.
