History and Policy founder and Steering Committee member Public Policy SRI, Professor Simon Szreter, gave evidence to the Public Administration Select Committee’s inquiry into civil service skills.

Prof Szreter emphasized the importance of historical training and good record keeping in government departments, which increasingly lack knowledge about their recent history. PASC is considering the skills and capabilities the civil service needs to ensure good governance for both current and future governments.
