First machinery of government workshop sees good engagement from Deputies

Share this page

Tuesday 08 February 2022

The first workshop on the review of machinery of government took place with Deputies last week, providing an opportunity for Members to provide their views regarding how to improve the way government works.

The workshop was well attended and was the first of several engagement opportunities which will take place as proposals for machinery of government develop.

The next such opportunity is for those invited to the community workshop on Tuesday 15th February. A number of organisations representing the business, charitable and other sectors, have been invited to put forward people to take part in the workshop. If you have received such an invitation, please respond as soon as possible.

The Policy & Resources Committee and States' Assembly & Constitution Committee are working closely together on the review, which is looking at how government can be set up to deliver the best service most effectively to the community.

Deputy Heidi Soulsby, Vice-President of the Policy & Resources Committee, said:

'The turnout for this workshop shows there is clearly a desire amongst Deputies to improve the way that government works, which is why we, as an Assembly, made this a priority in the Government Work Plan. There was plenty of discussion and good engagement all round.

'We're looking forward to our next event on Tuesday 15th February to meet with members of the community. If you've been invited to our community workshop and haven't yet got back to us, please do get in touch to let us know whether you can make it. Receiving this insight from those outside government as well is so important.'

The machinery of government review comes under the priority area 'Re-shaping Government' within the Government Work Plan, the Assembly's comprehensive, phased plan of action for this political term.
