Working group to review working groups

The government has announced the formation of a working group to work on reviewing all the working groups it’s formed.

“The government has been listening to the public’s growing concerns about the number of committees and working groups in operation and the uncertainty and lack of action that results from this,” chair of the new committee, Ann Overseer, said.

“They decided that the best way to ensure all these bodies were actually doing something worthwhile was to form another committee with complete oversight of all of them.

“Policy is a complex best and if the government is to get the outcomes it wants that are both practical and politically saleable, it needs to ensure the working groups are working and working well.”

Ms Overseer declined to comment on whether her group was formed because the report from the Tax Working Group (TWG) was such a dog’s breakfast.

“It’s not my job to comment on the whys and wherefores of what’s gone on before. My committee and I will be busy enough focussing on ensuring that no canine fodder will be delivered in any other report.”

The new group will be called the Committee to Review all Panels (CRaP).

In order to minimise costs it will be expected to work expeditiously and report its first findings by midday today.
