In the coming weeks, you will notice that it’s much quieter than usual on this blog and all the other blogs run by government departments and agencies. This is because between midnight on Friday, 21 April 2017 and the general election on 8 June 2017, it is the pre-election period.
This means that we only communicate essential information. In addition, the comment functionality on this blog, and others on gov.uk, will be closed during this pre-election period and we will not respond to existing comments. This is to make sure we comply with the general election guidance for civil servants.
This applies to @innovateuk on Twitter, this blog, and any government blogs and social media channels.
