The Department only holds records of consultations centrally dating from 2006. A table showing the title and date of publication and closure of each consultation has been placed in the House Library. Information related to consultations closed prior to this period could be collated only at disproportionate cost.

DEFRA also publishes this information alongside the Government's response to each consultation (issued within the last year) on its website:
