'Programme for Government Seminar'

The Forum has been giving considerable thought to how best to mitigate the impact of cuts in public expenditure while improving outcomes for users of services. Our various discussions, which have involved senior officials and from time to time people from outside the machinery of government, have given rise to several reports and, along with a call for a transformation of public services. This seminar represented a important stage in the ongoing discussion.

The seminar considered the key aims of the forthcoming Programme for Government now in draft but, more particularly, how those aims might be better brought about.

A report of the discussions at Stormont House is available on request. A copy will be published here shortly.
