HC Deb 19 July 1983 vol 46 c73W
Q9. Mr. Eggar

asked the Prime Minister if she is satisfied with the standard of management within the Civil Service.

The Prime Minister

Not yet. It will take a long time. But Departments have put much energy and hard work into improving management, and a reasonable foundation has been laid. I have asked all Ministers in charge of Departments to give their continuing personal attention to ensuring good progress.
