Issuues

Particular issues to be explored with the Minister may include:

  • Government policy on "interchange" and the "revolving door" between the public and private sectors;
  • The appropriate balance to be struck between use of expertise from beyond Whitehall, and public concerns about propriety and undue influence;
  • The work of the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments (ACoBA) and the operation of the Business Appointment Rules; and
  • Compliance with the Business Appointment Rules.

Witness

Wednesday 25 April 2012, Committee Room 8
