I agree with Eowyth's suggestion to write in with your comments, both about
how the survey was formatted, and your opinions on the topic of the survey

There is another group I am on where somebody said they wrote in, and they
have already received a response; there do seem to be people assigned to
listen to channels other than the survey.

From the original email, the address to send comments to digitally was
*[log in to unmask]
<[log in to unmask]>*, with a subject line of "*2019 Peerage Committee
