The Government have published today “The Cabinet Manual” on the Cabinet Office website: www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/resource-library/cabinet-manual.

“The Cabinet Manual” is intended to be a source of information on the UK’s laws, conventions and rules that affect the operation and procedures of Government.

A summary of responses received on the “Draft Cabinet Manual”, which was published in December 2010, and a Government response to the reports of the House of Lords Constitution Committee, Political and Constitutional Reform Committee and Public Administration Select Committee (Cm 8213) on “The Cabinet Manual” have also been published on the Cabinet Office website.

Copies of all documents have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses and also in the Vote Office and Printed Paper Office.
