Speaker information

Guy Lodge, Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), Guy Lodge leads IPPR's work on political and democratic reform and has published widely in this area and on British politics more generally. Guy regularly comments on British politics and public policy issues in the national and international media.
Sir Leigh Lewis, Respondent Sir Leigh Lewis was most recently appointed chair of the Bill of Rights Commission, which reported in December 2012.

Civil service reform has been a core element of the coalition government's constitutional agenda, with Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude publishing his reform plan in June 2012. In September 2012, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) was commissioned by Maude to carry out a review into how other civil services work, with a particular focus on the accountability structures used in other countries. IPPR is due to report its findings soon, which will provide the minister with policy advice to inform thinking on future reform. IPPR's Associate Director for Politics and Power, Guy Lodge, is heading the research. He will be discussing the results of his comparative investigation, joined by respondent Sir Leigh Lewis.

A light sandwich lunch will be available from 12.00
