LETTER FROM THE OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER
FOR PUBLIC APPOINTMENTS
Dear Clerk of the Committee
I am aware from a recent press notice that the
Select Committee on Public Administration has agreed to undertake
an inquiry into the publication "Ministerial Code".
It appears from reading the section which refers
to Appointments by Ministers that it might be helpful if it were
updated to reflect more closely the requirements and the spirit
of the Commissioner's Code of Practice and Guidance. I am happy
to be of service if you want to proceed in this way.
