The Government's response to the 'Machinery of Government Changes' report rejected the idea that a reorganisation of the civil service should be subject to parliamentary scrutiny and some measure of parliamentary control. The response contrast with other government statements about the role of parliament and the Committee think that there should be some reconciliation. A forthcoming draft bill on constitutional reform is likely to include provision to put the civil service on a statutory footing. As part of this the Committee would recommend measures to allow Parliament effective scrutiny of changes to the organisation of government itself.
