A note to senior civil servants

In future, we’ll be able to offer much more news; and that will remain free to everyone. However, we’ll still be sending the magazine to everyone in the senior civil service: if you’re a senior civil servant and don’t currently receive the magazine, please email us at and we’ll put you on the mailing list – absolutely free of charge.
