Earlier this year the Government published Sir Gerry Grimstone's report on public appointments proposing major changes to the way in which Ministerial appointments to public bodies are regulated. Sir David Normington, the former Commissioner for Public Appointments and an outspoken critic of the proposals, will review the arguments for and against giving Ministers more control over public appointments. He will discuss the background to the report, explain why, in his view, it represents a step in the wrong direction and examine what has happened since the report was published.
