The Institute for Government is delighted to publish the ninth edition of our annual Whitehall Monitor report on the government’s size, shape and performance.
This report launch will explore what Whitehall Monitor 2022 reveals about the way the pandemic has changed how the government works and how the Covid-19 response will sit alongside ministers’ wider agenda for the second half of the parliament.
How has the Omicron variant complicated the government’s attempts to move away from crisis management mode? What will increases to departmental spending mean for pandemic backlogs? And what do civil service staff cuts mean for government capability – including its ambitions for civil service reform?
On our panel to discuss these issues will be:
- Lucy Fisher, Deputy Political Editor at the Telegraph Media Group
- Dame Glenys Stacey, Chair of the Office for Environmental Protection
- William Wragg MP, Chair of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Select Committee
The event will be chaired by Alex Thomas, Programme Director at the Institute for Government.
