Civil Service Reform

Asked whether the PM believed that underperforming civil servants should be fired, the PMS said that it was currently possible to dismiss people in the civil service if they were not performing to the required standard.

Asked whether there were any new reforms in the pipeline, the PMS said that the Government waslooking at the issue of public sector reform including how we manage the civil service.

Asked whether a new measure of performance management would be introduced, the PMS said that this was one issue which Sir Bob Kerslake was considering.

Asked whether one department would road test a 70% cut in staffing levels, the PMS said that the Government was not proposing 70 per cent cuts.
