Detail of outcome

Interim summary of responses giving the initial findings from the consultation and the next steps towards determining the final response.

Themes arising so far include:

  • further clarity on the proposed text of the guidance
  • including real world or good practice examples of how to evaluate certain types of service
  • differing views on whether “not-for-profit” operators fall within scope of the exemptions in regulation, with a particular focus on the “non-commercial” exemption

We will continue to work to:

  1. analyse all remaining responses
  2. determine our final approach to the guidance and draft regulations

We intend to announce our government response in the Autumn.
