Thank you to everyone who has responded so far to the MCS Technical Competence Consultation. We have received an overwhelming amount of interest since the announcement, but we have noted that some people have requested more time to formalise their responses. In light of this, the steering group have agreed to revise the closing date to 5pm on 23rd July 2012.
