The deadline for written evidence has passed but we are still accepting written submissions.
For the purposes of transparency, we ask those submitting evidence on behalf of an organisation to include in their written submission a brief description of their organisation, including its role, membership and any sources of funding that might be reasonably considered to represent a relevant interest in relation to the subject of this inquiry. Declaring a relevant interest of this sort will not necessarily prevent an organisation from being invited to give oral evidence to the Committee.
Due to the general election on 12 December 2019 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 6 November, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.
