Dear Department for Education,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

This request has not been responded to in time, and is therefore in breach of the law. No reasons have been given as to why the response has been delayed. I have not received any messages asking me to clarify this request or provide more information.

Dear Natasha Phillips 

Thank you for your letter requesting information on a number of government
consultations.

With regards to the consultation on Mandatory Reporting Of Child Abuse:
The consultation sought views on the advisability, risk, nature and scope
of a mandatory duty to report child abuse and neglect and an alternative
duty focused on taking appropriate action, as well as the effects of
embedding current Government reforms. The Government has committed to
laying a report before Parliament on the outcome of the consultation. 
Submissions are being considered and a Government response will be
published in due course.

The consultation on Vulnerable Witnesses Practice Direction: This
information is not held by the Department for Education and suggest that
you contact the Ministry of Justice (MOJ).

We published two documents on 1 November 2017 in response to the
consultation on the Care Of Unaccompanied and Trafficked Children.  These
documents can be found at:

Consultation on National Fostering Stocktake: A summary of the call for
evidence for the National Fostering Stocktake will be published alongside
the reviewers’ final report in the New Year.

Consultation Analysing Family Circumstances and Education: The Department
will publish a response in due course.

Your correspondence has been allocated reference number 2017-0049974. If
