Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill — Power to appoint and approve senior civil servants in the Scottish Executive — 3 Nov 2009 at 20:45
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare did not vote.
The majority of MPs voted against requiring the Minister of the civil service to delegate appointment and approval of senior civil servants in the Scottish Executive to the Head of the Home Civil Service.
I beg to move amendment 48, in page 3, line 7, at end add-
'(6) The Minister for the Civil Service shall delegate the appointment and approval of senior civil servants to senior posts in the Scottish Executive to the Head of the Home Civil Service, acting on advice of the Civil Service Commission.'.
