I have just spoken to the Department of Health about the mandate, after several members emailed us to say your responses were being returned as 'mailbox full'.
I was told that they had not expected such a large response. They have asked their IT Department to increase the mailbox size. The very nice DoH person I spoke to tried very hard to find someone responsible for the mandate consultation to give me an alternative email address. He couldn't find anyone.
I asked if they would extend the consultation date, in the light of the size of the response. He said he hoped so, 'given the importance of the matter, you would expect it, wouldn't you?' He promised to let me know if their IT department gave them the extra space, if a second address became available, or if they were going to extend the date.
I'll keep you updated.
