Annex 3: Number of comments made at each question

Table A3.1 below shows the total number of respondents who made some form of comment at each of the consultation questions. Note, however, that respondents did not necessarily follow the question structure as set out in the consultation paper, nor were the comments necessarily related to the question asked. Therefore, the numbers below should not be seen as representing the response rates for individual questions.
