Call for Responses on the Future of Local Government Archaeology Services
In response to issues raised by representatives of the archaeological sector at an event organised by the Archaeology Forum in October 2013, the Minister for Culture, Communications and the Creative Industries, Ed Vaizey, has initiated a review to be undertaken by Lord Redesdale and John Howell MP into the future of local government archaeological services.

The review is seeking written evidence on a set of defined questions. You are invited to consider your responses and submit them by the deadline of 14[SUP]th[/SUP] February 2014. Oral evidence sessions are scheduled to follow in March. The questions are accompanied by a briefing paper detailing background information to the review to assist respondents in formulating their submissions.

The review is intended to take in a broad range of opinions from across the UK, and it is open to anyone to submit evidence. It would therefore be appreciated if you could share this message with colleagues in your networks.
