Stories involving Francis Maude

Ineffective civil servants face sack

Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude has suggested that senior civil servants could be sacked if they fail to implement Government policy effectively enough. The plan has been suggested by the Institute for Public Policy Research as a way to achieve greater civil service accountability.


'Our Thatcher moment'

Conservative MPs urged party members to stockpile fuel supplies to increase panic over fuel supplies and "humiliate" the unions, the Telegraph reports.

In a private message to members seen by the newspaper, MPs compared the current row to the fuel shortage in the 1980s, saying: "This is our Thatcher moment."

The union Unite's general secretary, Len McCluskey, accused the Conservatives of using the motorists as "pawns" in their "blame game". He called on the party to "come clean" over the suggestions arising from their messages to members.

Earlier today, the Government changed its advice to motorists, saying there is now "no urgent need" to top up on fuel after two days of panic buying.

Yesterday Unite ruled out any strike action over the Easter weekend, easing the burden on fuel supplies.

Labour have kept up the pressure on Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude, who suggested the public should store fuel in jerry cans, after a woman in York suffered severe burns decanting petrol in her kitchen.

The opposition MP John Mann told the BBC this morning that Mr Maude's comments were "inappropriate, dangerous and reckless" and called for David Cameron to replace him with someone "who is up to the job".


Maude launches National Citizen Service

An army of "dedicated young people" will spend three quarters of a million hours helping their communities to tackle the social problems that matter most to them, Francis Maude will announce today.

The Cabinet Office Minister will reveal plans for the National Citizen Service 2012 which will enable young people to "gain valuable life experience and new skills, make friends from all walks of life and prepare themselves for their futures".

Welcoming the scheme, David Cameron said: "I want every 16-year-old in our country to be given this opportunity, making them feel more part of our country and helping to build the bigger, stronger society we all want."

No 10: Risk discussion in Cabinet
Maude attacked over tax haven gaffe

Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude has been attacked for apparently boasting about making the UK a tax haven for the rich. Mr Maude - dubbed the "Minister for Panic" by the Sun - said the accusation the Government wanted to make the UK a place for wealthy foreigners to avoid high taxes was "a compliment".


Maude warns against opposing gay marriage

Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude will tell Conservatives they must back gay marriage to gain support from unmarried, ethnic minority and City supporters in a speech later today.

He will say Tories have not done enough to change "backward-looking social attitudes" in the party and warn that opposition to marriage equality will make them "unacceptable and unelectable".


Civil servants live in 'parallel universe'

Civil servants have been accused of living in a "parallel universe" after leaked documents showed they could claim compensation for laddered tights or snagged suits. The news will come as a blow to Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude, who only this week said reforms under the Coalition were creating a "much leaner, more effective Whitehall machine".
