Politics & press news – Embassy 25 – May 2010

More ministers, please

The Foreign Affairs Select Committee has recommended that the new government taking office in May should increase the size of the FCO ministerial team in the House of Commons, by restoring at least one of the two minister of state posts which the FCO has lost since 1997.

In their final report, MPs said: “The current overloading of portfolios makes it difficult for individual ministers, however talented and hard-working, to carry out their full range of duties effectively.”
