    consent to/in

    Which sounds better, "in" or "to" in the following sentence?

    We must ask for people's consent in/to implementing the measures against novel influenza.

    Neither one works for me. I prefer this:
    "We must ask for people's consent before implementing the measures against novel influenza."
