All you need to know about the Declaration on Government Reform, an exclusive interview with the Department for Education perm sec, and much more

Read the  July-August summer double issue of CSW

This issue tells you all you need to know about the Declaration on Government Reform - what it covers, what is missing, and how it stacks up against the criticisms of one of the men behind it – Dominic Cummings, the PM's former adviser.

Elsewhere, we share stories about how the government and the wider public sector have responded to the coronavirus pandemic of the last 18 months. We hear from the Department for Education’s permanent secretary Susan Acland-Hood about taking the helm of the ministry amid school exam chaos – and how she plans to avoid a second round this summer. And we speak to Sir Mark Carleton-Smith, the head of the British Army, to get his reflections on the military’s role in helping the government respond to Covid.

Both accounts highlight the exceptional work of public servants in exceptional times.

Read all these stories and more in the July-August summer double issue of CSW.
