§ Mr. Robin Squire
My right hon. and learned Friend has today laid an order, made under section 23 of the Local Government Act 1992, to set up a staff commission. The commission, to be known as the Local Government Staff Commission (England), will be established formally on 13 May 1993.
I am inviting the following people to serve as members of the Local Government Staff Commission (England):
- Alan Atherton
- Colin Jeynes
- Judith Lovelace
- I have asked Mr. Atherton to serve as chairman.
This is a strong, independent commission whose members have a range of experience in local government and staffing matters.
