As part of the CIPD’s public policy work, we regularly respond to government and government agency consultations and calls for evidence, as well as inquiries being held by Parliamentary committees.

After a busy few months responding to a wide variety of consultations and inquiries, the CIPD is not preparing any further responses at present. If you would like more information on these consultations or if you have any questions about the Public Policy work of the CIPD more widely, please contact Paddy Smith, Public Affairs Manager, at

Member input is invaluable to writing a response which is both balanced and practical, and we actively encourage our members' contribution.
