- Rt Hon Dame Janet Paraskeva First Civil Service Commissioner and Dame Janet Gaymer QC, Commissioner for Public Appointments
These roles will in future be combined by one person. Their departure comes at a time of significant cuts in the size of the civil service and review of quangos.
PASC will examine what they have achieved while in office; what challenges they see for the future including the prospects for their now combined posts; reform to the public appointments system, and the consequences of current financial constraints on recruitment and morale in the civil service.
