Missions, ministers and money
January 21st, 2018 | Posted in Uncategorized
In the autumn of 2017 I gave a long interview to the Institute for Government for their series “Ministers Reflect”. I talked at length about my time as a Minister in Government – from a junior whip right through to a member of the Cabinet and Leader of the House of Lords. I spoke in particular about Whitehall’s relationship with Parliament and how we can legislate better. And I also talked about some of my experiences as a Civil Servant (from the mid-80s to mid-90s) and the differences I found in the Service when I returned to Whitehall as a Minister.
You can read the interview in full on the Institute for Government’s site on their special Ministers Reflect section.
This interview in the Sunday Times for their regular ‘Fame and Fortune’ feature in the Money Section (which appeared in the paper on 31st December 2017) covers my attitude towards money, and what I learned about how to manage it when growing up.
