Description

The 1966-68 Fulton Committee set wide-ranging guidelines for the wholesale reform of the British Civil Service. This book is the account of the Committee's work. Geoffrey Fry obtained access to the Committee papers a decade before the customary 30 year rule on government documents expired. His findings are supplemented by interviews with surviving members of the Committee and the higher civil servants and parliamentary ministers concerned with the implementation of the reforms. At a time when the nature of the British Civil Service is at the centre of informed public debate, this is a topical examination of the effectiveness of official committees comprising of "the great and the good" in bringing about change within the British Establishment.show more
