The Scottish Government now runs all consultations online through its consultation hub (http://consult.scotland.gov.uk). Each consultation is listed with its title, start and end dates. Consultations can be filtered by subject (interest) and policy team (department), however there is no facility to filter or view consultations by Minister or Ministerial portfolio.
If known, a consultation will indicate the date when findings will be published. Consultation responses and findings, where published, are attached to each consultation.
