“Putting the Frontline First”

Volume 502: debated on Monday 7 December 2009

Today I am publishing a command paper entitled “Putting the Frontline First”. The document is an action plan for delivering better public services for lower cost. The plan has three central actions: driving up public service standards to strengthen the role of citizens and civic society, providing new freedoms for frontline services by recasting the relationship between the centre and the front line, and streamlining the centre of Government for sharper delivery.

Copies of the document have been deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.
