From the cover: “The purpose of this book is to explain what the British Civil Service does, and how the administrative and executive work of the Government is divided among the principal Departments. The work has been completely revised by the author for this new edition. He describes how officials are recruited, under what conditions they carry out their tasks, and what is the range of salaries paid. The complicated procedures of administration are made clear by showing the system at work in an imaginary Ministry modelled on a present-day Government Department. Special attention is given to the machinery for financing Government Departments and controlling their vast expenditures; to the Treasury and its functions; and to the relations between Parliamentary Committees and the Civil Service. The author, born near Crieff in 1900, has served in the General Post Office, the Home Office, the Central Office of Information and other departments. He now holds a post in commercial television.”
