HC Deb 17 October 1994 vol 248 c41W
Mr. David Nicholson

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster which OECD countries have introduced public service reforms similar to those in the United Kingdom.

Mr. David Hunt

All OECD countries are introducing public service reforms. In many of these areas the United Kingdom is seen as the leading innovator and model of good practice. For the third year in succession the United Kingdom is offering an opportunity for OECD countries to exchange information and benefit from good practice through its international service for the citizen conference, on 8 and 9 December this year. Eminent speakers from eight countries have been invited to share their experiences of public service reform with an international audience.
