Asked if it would be fair to assume that the CSA would be rebranded and have a new name after the latest review, the PMOS said that the question was a legitimate one, but people would have to wait until Mr. Henshaw had done his job. What we had said was that this was a blank page, and Mr. Henshaw had been asked to design the system that we needed to address the problem. People then worked backwards from that to work out what the implications were for the CSA. As John Hutton had said, this was not a problem about the staff at the CSA, but rather, it was about designing a system that was fit for the purpose. Unfortunately, the system we had at the moment was not fit.

Asked if there would be recruitment of new staff to fill in shortages of staff that currently existed, the PMOS said that was a matter for the CSA. What we had come up with today was a number of operational improvements which could be implemented on a short term basis while this plan was being put together.
