On 16th October, as a part of my Department’s increased programme of engagement, we launched the first of a series of roundtables with civil society groups on areas of key interest to them. Agendas for future roundtables will be developed in partnership with a range of civil society organisations. We do not plan to publish the names of organisations invited to participate.
