From 4 October 2017 to 26 January 2018, the MAC held a call for evidence, and also met with many stakeholders. Details of organisations who submitted evidence are contained in the annex to the report. The main written call for evidence submissions received from stakeholders are being published, with the exception of two organisations who asked for their evidence to be confidential.
