Before changing a policy, the Home Office consults on the issue and asks for responses from stakeholders and organisations with specialist knowledge in that area. We also welcome responses from the general public.
The responses received help to ensure that any proposed changes to the law will have a real, practical impact.
Consultation papers and responses on wider Home Office issues are available from the Gov.uk website. Details of UK Border Agency consultations that have now closed are available on the Closed consultations page.
