Committee to hear from Cabinet Secretary about the constitutional implications of the Cabinet Manual

09 March 2011

The Political and Constitutional Reform Committee will take evidence tomorrow at 10 am on Thursday 10 March in the Wilson Room, Portcullis House from:

• Sir Gus O’Donnell KCB, Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Civil Service

The Cabinet Manual is a document produced by the Cabinet Office intended to be “a source of information on the UK’s laws, conventions and rules, including those of a constitutional nature, that affect the operation and procedures of government”. It was published in draft for consultation in December 2010.

This is the final evidence session in this inquiry and will explore with the Cabinet Secretary some of the issues that have been raised about the draft Cabinet Manual and his reflections on the Cabinet Office’s consultation process on the draft which has just closed.
