Purpose of session

The evidence session is the second session of the Committee’s Citizens and Public Services Inquiry which aims to scrutinize the Government’s plans for public service reform and consider the wider public service reform agenda.

The Committee will first hear from four businesses involved in the delivery of public services: Atos, Capita, G4S, and Serco. For the second panel the Committee will hear from two small charities: Only Connect and Streets2Homes, as well as the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Particular issues

Particular issues to be explored may include:

  • the opportunities for local communities to get involved in public service design and delivery
  • whether the Government has successfully devolved power away from Whitehall and into local communities
  • how businesses and charities delivering public services can be held to account

The @CommonsPASC Twitter account will be live tweeting the session, using the #PublicServices hashtag.
