The response rate shown against Question 4 includes respondents who submitted 'offline' responses and provided comments alongside their answers to the three individual tick-box questions.

The 'non-response' rate at Questions 1 to 3 is largely accounted for by the 'reports of consultation activities' submitted in various formats to the consultation.
