Public Administration Select Committee is inquiring into the role and independence of ethics and standards watchdogs. This inquiry will focus on issues surrounding their accountability, independence, contribution to public administration and whether the time has come for some rationalisation. It will therefore be a stocktake of the ethical regulation of government, and will explore whether there are improvements that can be made to the present arrangements.
