This document is the Government response to the consultation on the proposal to extend the current Right to Control pilot schemes by a further 12 months, and the draft amendment regulations required to effect that extension. The consultation asked for views on the proposal to extend the current Right to Control pilot schemes and the draft amendment regulations, whose purpose it is to effect that extension. There was unanimous support amongst those who commented, for the extension of Right to Control for a further 12 months, and two minor technical comments on the amendment regulations. The draft regulations will be laid in Parliament in October, with the aim of bringing them into force on 12 December 2012. During the extension period government will work with Trailblazers to maximise the available evidence base. The independent evaluation report, due to be published in Spring 2013, together with the further Trailblazer management information and case studies, gathered during the extension period will be used to assess the Right to Control’s impact on disabled people and to inform future decisions about the Right to Control.
