EHE Guidelines Consultation 2007 - Responses from those in the category "Others" 



There were 102 responses to the consultation that were classified as "others".

Most had ticked this option on the response form, others had ticked more than one box including others, and some had not checked a box or used the response form and must have been categorised by the DfES.


The responses to the consultation from Local Authorities can be seen here.



Files available 


Those 102 responses have been received in 14 pdf files after making a FOI request for them.

The pdf files will not be individually transcribed but are available below to view or download.
