The UK Experience of Public Administration Reform

Current Good Practices and New Developments in Public Service Management

image of The UK Experience of Public Administration Reform

Public sector reform has moved on apace since the first of the Commonwealth Public Service Country Profile Series was launched in 1995 when the principles of New Public Management (NPM) were in an early stage of adoption. Since then, the various civil services described in the series have undergone radical change in scope, organisation and approach rendering a revision timely. Now up dated and completely revised, these reissued Country Profiles continue to be an accessible and valuable source of reference which attempt to both describe and analyse the often tumultuous and controversial public sector reforms which have taken place in contributing countries since 1995. Practising bureaucrats diplomats political and academic audiences will find these new books invaluable in benchmarking best practice in public sector reform across Commonwealth member countries.

Central Government

Members of the government – Secretaries of State and other Ministers – are drawn from Parliament, mainly, but by no means exclusively, from the House of Commons. The leader of the political party able to command a majority in the House of Commons is invited by the monarch to become Prime Minister. He or she is, by fairly recent convention, usually a member of the House of Commons, the elected chamber, rather than the House of Lords.
