Consultations and APIL responses

Very often, before laws and policies change, consultation papers are produced so the public and relevant organisations have an opportunity to comment on what is proposed. APIL prides itself on responding to all consultations which include proposals which will affect injured people, whether they are from the Government or from other bodies, such as the Law Commission or the Health and Safety Executive
