About the Commission

The Commission’s work has been informed by consultation and engagement with a wide range of experts and stakeholders across the subjects it has studied. Many people and organisations responded to our calls for evidence, attended round tables and other events, sent us material or met us to discuss their research and experience. We are very grateful to everyone who contributed to the Commission in these ways.
