  • (a) report on the various activities of the service and the level of efficiency and quality of service provided in each case;
  • (b) establish whether the service by improving its efficiency or by other means could reduce its costs or offset the effects of any increase in its costs; and
  • (c) to provide recommendations about how and where such improvements could be made by the service or by Government.
  • The study is to be completed by March 1983.
