HC Deb 01 December 1982 vol 33 c169W
57. Mr. Sainsbury

asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he is satisfied with the progress being made in improving the efficiency of the Civil Service.

Mr. Hayhoe

Good progress in improving efficiency is being made as is explained in some detail in the White Paper "Efficiency and Effectiveness in the Civil Service" (Cmnd. 8616). But much remains to be done. The White Paper also sets out our continuing programme of efficiency work, particularly the improvement of financial management.
