Welcoming a delegation from Kuwait

Today I had the pleasure of welcoming a delegation from Kuwait, who were visiting parliament in order to gain a greater understanding of the interaction between the UK Civil Service and the UK Parliament.

The aim of the trip was to enhance the delegation’s understanding of the structure, organisation and vision of the UK Civil Service. By the end of their visit they will have examined how the Civil Service Code drives the way in which the Civil Service recruits, develops and performance manages Civil Servants.

I was asked to speak specifically about my background and the work of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs (PACAC) Committee. I was joined by David Jones MP who also sits on the Committee and between the both of us we explained how the committee works, how we take inquiries, who gives evidence to these enquiries and our current inquiries and areas of interest.
