HC Deb 25 February 1982 vol 18 cc443-4W
Q39. Mr. Eggar

asked the Prime Minister whether she is satisfied that the current training programme and succession planning for civil servants is suited to the new emphasis being placed on management skills within the Civil Service.

The Prime Minister

Management training already has high priority in the Civil Service, but there is more to be done and the work is in hand on it. At senior levels, the recently introduced succession planning arrangements are helping to identify those likely to occupy the highest ranks who will need training and experience in management skills.
