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

Message to APIL members

We’d like to hear from you, so please send us your thoughts – points related to a specific question, general comments on the proposals, or case studies. These will then be shared with the working group responding to the relevant consultation. Get involved!
