Civil service reform

Asked whether there were plans to cut the civil service by 90%, the PMS said that the Government was not planning cuts on that scale. We were cutting spending which meant that the number of jobs in the public sector would fall over the spending review period.

Asked whether the cabinet were planning to outsource policy to think tanks, the PMS said that the Government was looking at a range of options to reform the civil service. We wanted to address its weaknesses and build on its strengths. This particular idea had been mentioned by the Cabinet Secretary at an IfG conference in March.
