Policy Panel

We have established a Policy Panel of experts from across the political spectrum and the governments of the UK – Westminster, the home nations and the English Combined Authorities – to inform our research and our approach to policy. As with the Advisory Group, our Policy Panellists have been invited to participate in a one-to-one interview with our research team. The Policy Panel will be consulted throughout the work of the Commission.

In line with our tripartite model, we would like as broad a range of support as possible for our recommendations, however we know that this may not be possible. Therefore, the final recommendations will be made by the Commissioners alone.
