Inquiry status: concluded
The Cabinet Manual (PDF) was published by the Government in October 2011.
The Political and Constitutional Reform Committee produced a Report on a draft version of the Manual in March 2011. The Committee’s Report, Constitutional implications of the Cabinet Manual, stated: “We intend to monitor closely how the Cabinet Manual develops, and how it is used both within and beyond Government during the life of this Parliament.”
The Committee is now returning to the subject to see how the Cabinet Manual is being used in practice and to consider what additions and changes might be necessary when it is revised.
