Confusion in Whitehall as Civil Servants Don't Know Which Party to Advise

Wednesday 7 May, 2014

In the run up to the general election the civil service is facing difficulties when dealing with requests for information from the two parties of the coalition government. There is a fear that the Liberal Democrats will face unfair treatment as the Conservative government attempts to block off information in order to maintain a political advantage. Ministers are urging the coalition government to issue clear instructions so as to prevent confusion within the civil service.
