§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What steps they have taken to draw the contents of the Civil Service Code to the attention of individual members of the Civil Service; and
What steps they have taken to bring the contents of the Civil Service Code to the attention of members of the public; and whether they will take further such steps; and, if not, why not.94WA
Copies of the Civil Service Code were printed for every civil servant, and distributed throughout the Civil Service at the start of this year when the code came into effect.
The code is primarily a document for internal use within the Civil Service. However, at the time of its introduction it was publicised in Written Answers in both Houses [30th October, HoL WA146 and HoC col. 10], and in press notices issued by Cabinet Office (OPS). It is freely available on request to members of the public.
