Electronic Balloting for Industrial action: Knight review - Call for Evidence

Closed 14 Jul 2017

Opened 1 Mar 2017


This consultation sets out the background to Sir Ken Knight’s independent review of electronic balloting and calls for evidence in support of it.

In the weeks up to the general election we are unable to promote the call for evidence, in line with the guidance for civil servants. We are therefore extending the deadline for responses from 10 May to 14 July 2017.
