Postponement of UK Multistakeholder Forum

Hi all

Please see below message from Nicola Betz, Private Secretary to Julia Lopez MP, postponing the UK Multistakeholder Forum, following the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and introduction of related Government Mourning Guidance.

Best wishes,


Dear UK Open Government Network

I hope this email finds you well.

As you know, Minister Lopez was to host the Open Government Partnership Multi-Stakeholder Forum next week. Minister Lopez fully supports this important agenda and was keen to explore how we can best drive forward our collaboration on transparency, accountability and public participation.

Unfortunately following the profoundly sad announcement today of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, we will have to reschedule the meeting in line with the Government Mourning Guidance.

We will seek to reschedule the meeting at the earliest opportunity in the week of the 26th April. I would be grateful if you could work with Sam to notify us of a suitable time.

I apologise for this disappointing news and thank you for your understanding.

Best wishes,
