Government response to the consultation on the regulations for the Right to control trial sites, known as Trailblazers. The Government received 34 responses to the consultation and the eight original Trailblazer sites each provided a response to the consultation. In general the responses received remained positive and supportive of the Right to control, with only one response that was against the overall principle. Several concerns were raised over the complexity of the regulations. It was felt that exercising the Right to control across a range of funding streams, some of which already have their own legal frameworks, required more detail and clarity to be put into the regulations. The analysis of the comments received and how the government is responding to them is set out in this document.
