Chair invites Prime Minister to give evidence to reshuffles inquiry

04 September 2012

The Chair of the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee has written to the Prime Minister to invite him to give evidence to the Committee’s inquiry into the impact and effectiveness of ministerial reshuffles

The full text of the letter is below.

Rt Hon David Cameron MP
Prime Minister
10 Downing Street
                                                                 4 September 2012

The Political and Constitutional Reform Select Committee is currently conducting an inquiry into the impact and effectiveness of ministerial reshuffles. 

In the light of this week’s reshuffle, I would like to invite you to give oral evidence to the Committee.  As the power to appoint, dismiss and move Ministers is a prerogative power of the Prime Minister, you are in a unique position to provide the Committee with an insight into the reshuffle process and the reasons why reshuffles are undertaken.

I would be most grateful for a preliminary written submission to the inquiry.

I have enclosed a copy of the inquiry’s terms of reference for your information.

Yours sincerely

Graham Allen MP
Chair of the Committee
