Relaunch of our Ask the Minister section
Back by popular demand – the chance for you to pose a question on SEN and disability policy to Minister Edward Timpson.
Would you like to ask the Minister a question about the Children and Families Bill? Or about another area of policy that impacts on the families and young people you work with?
If you have something you’d like to ask, please send through your question to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Tuesday 5th November.
The answers to these questions will be printed in the December issue of our Digest.You can see an example of the Ask the Minister section in the May 2012 edition of the CDC Digest.
Please note that CDC do not guarantee a response to all queries. Questions will be collated by CDC and may be adapted to incorporate similar questions.
