Two events regarding the Measuring Consumer Prices – the options for change consultation, have been announced. The events - one in Manchester on 1 September and one in Cardiff on Thursday 3 September, will give an overview of the consultation and provide users with the opportunity to express their views on the issues raised.
The consultation, which was launched on 15 June 2015, followed the recent review on consumer price statistics led by Paul Johnson and welcomes contributions from all of those who have an interest in these statistics. It closes on 15 September, after which the Statistics Authority will publish a summary of the responses received in a report and make the responses to the consultation available on its website. A final response will be published in early 2016.
