“In a recent study, Helen Taylor and Axel Kaehne looked at responses to the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill to consider how effective the public consultation process is at incorporating wider expertise into the legislative process. The findings highlighted a number of issues relating to both the nature of responses and the way in which they were sought. The authors argue that if the government values participation from a broad range of organisations and citizens, additional efforts are required to promote effective inclusion.”
