A review looking into the provision of public services in Wales has been announced by the First Minister.
Carwyn Jones says he will make a further statement of the remit of the Commission of Public Service Governance and Delivery "in due course".
I am establishing a Commission on Public Service Governance and Delivery and I ampleased to announce that Sir Paul Williams has agreed to chair this Commission. Nick Bennett, Nick Bourne, Nerys Evans, Juliet Luporini, Garry Owen and Cllr Alun Thomas have agreed to serve as members ofthe Commission.
Since public sector budgets are likely to continue to tighten, and demand pressures grow, there is a clear need to examine how services can be sustained and standards of performance raised, so that people in Wales can continue to receive and influence the public services they need and value.
The establishment of this Commission on Public Service Governance and Delivery provides an opportunity for those who are involved in delivering services, those who are politically accountable for them and users of them to examine how public services are governed: that is, held accountable for their performance and delivered most effectively to the public.
