To inform the study an open call for evidence (PDF) was issued in September 2013, following the Working Group’s first meeting, and closed in November 2013. This resulted in 25 responses that informed the study.

The names of the individuals and organisations who responded to the call for evidence are given in Appendix 2 of the report.

The full set of responses to the call for evidence is available for download (PDF). Please note, this is a large file (18Mb).
