HC Deb 26 February 1996 vol 272 c307W
19. Mr. Touhig

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will make a statement on his proposals to improve the morale of the civil service. [15255]

Mr. Willetts

Morale in the civil service is best maintained by allowing staff to perform to the best of their abilities in the career they have chosen. As the Deputy Prime Minister made clear in his recent speech on the civil service, the Government's civil service reforms enable staff to focus their attention on delivering high-quality public services. This is the best way of satisfying both them and the users of their services.
