Call for Evidence for the Voting Rights, Consular Services and Statistics Report - Reminder

By ONS Admin posted 16-06-2014 15:58

A reminder that the UK Statistics Authority launched a Call for Evidence in April for the fourth semester cross-cutting Voting Rights, Consular Services and Statistics Report which will contribute towards the UK Government's Balance of EU Competences Review. The Report is being coordinated by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The deadline for submitting evidence is noon, 2 July 2014.

Launched in 2012 the Review is looking at the scope of the EU's competences as they affect the UK, how they are used, and what that means for the UK. While the review is government led it involves extensive consultation with a wide range of interested parties including Member States, EU Institutions, think tanks, academia, business, civil society, the UK Parliament and the general public. The reports are analytical, transparent and evidence-based; they will not produce specific recommendations and will not prejudge any future UK policy.

The objective of the statistics strand of the Report is to explore the impact of the balance of competences on issues such as data collection, respondent burden and an increase in demand for information.

To contribute to the Statistics strand of the Report, please submit your evidence to the following email Enquiries about the Statistics strand or about the submission of evidence should be sent to the same email address.
