Baroness Young of Old Scone

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have for taking forward work on the modernisation of public services. [HL1315]

Baroness Hayman

Like all members of this Government, we are committed to delivering efficient and responsive modern public services that provide excellence for the many, and not just the few. This department has published a booklet on what it has done and is planning to do to take forward the Government's long-term programme of reform to modernise the public service. These plans, which will evolve over the coming months, will lead to changes in the way MAFF does its business. Copies of this booklet,MAFF's Part in Modernising Government, have been placed in the Library of the House.

Modernising Government gives MAFF an opportunity to deliver better services to our many customers. We will make the most of this opportunity.
