How we’ll respond to your comment

Blog comments will be reviewed against our guidelines and if they comply we will publish them as soon as possible. We aim to do this the same working day if received before 12pm or the following working day if they are received after this time. Comments that do not comply will not be published.

If you are asking for information or detail related to another Welsh Government channel or service, then we’ll pass your comment on to the relevant team.

If you are making a complaint about the Welsh Government, then we’ll pass your comment to the Complaints Unit.
