Commenting on the speech by David Lidington M.P., Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, today (25th June), Mark Fox, Chief Executive of The Business Services Association, said:
“This is a robust and welcome challenge by the government to all those involved in the delivery of public services across the private, voluntary and public sectors.”
“The challenge to the industry is to improve management practices, increase transparency and develop new arguments for the private sector to deliver public services. A challenge we embrace.”
“We welcome these proposals and look forward to working with the government to create more diverse, vibrant markets which can make the most of talent from across all parts of the United Kingdom, and deliver quality public services to the benefit of the taxpayer.”
