Govt 'lacks strategy'

Govt 'lacks strategy'
A lack of strategic thinking in the Government has led to a "patch and mend" pattern of policymaking that will undermine public confidence in ministers, an influential committee of MPs has warned.

A report from the Public Administration Select Committee also said a "lack of clear thinking about presentation" was evident in the Budget and the Government's response to the threat of strikes from fuel tanker drivers.

The report, published today, recommends an annual 'Statement of National Strategy'.

Committee chair Bernard Jenkin this morning said the Government was "perhaps reluctant to spell out its top line objectives" and that the Coalition's six strategic aims were "all extremely general motherhood and apple pie-ish".
