Civil Service

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the Answer of 17 March 2009, Official Report, column 774, whether proposals on the constitutional position of the Civil Service will be included in the Constitutional Renewal Bill. (265651)

The Governance of Britain Green Paper set out the Government’s commitment to bring forward legislation to enshrine the core principles and values of the civil service in law. The draft Constitutional Renewal Bill contained provisions in respect of the civil service. As I said, it remains my intention that the necessary legislation will be brought forward. The Bill is in the final stages of drafting.
