We will publish a summary of the responses to the document in line with the consultation code of practice set out by the Cabinet Office, which will be available on the departmental website.

Very interesting. I am still waiting for information from the FOI act. All about nuclear dai but with little success. However, I now have a different method of getting some of the information I am seeking via other contacts.

So mr davies is now asking to see all the 182 replies to the department of Vera Baird (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs) Will he pay for them I say. No chance , If he doesn't mind wasting over £30k on his questions what's a few quid more I say. He will never read the 182 replies I suspect not so why worry about them mr davies?

I suggest you chill out a wee bit and get somebody else to write your questions. You seem to be a little stressed out with all the nuclear issues active at the moment. Perhaps a visit to your mate Geoff will be able to ease the stress so pop down and see him I suggest, he may be able to help. Afterall, he is the boss of that organisation to which you belong in the Borough I've been told.
