Public Services

Volume 715: debated on Monday 7 December 2009


My right honourable friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Liam Byrne) has today made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

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 front-line 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.
