  • Ministers make policies?
    • Civil servants are only there to serve the current government, offer advice + suggestions
      • 'Ministers decide, civil servants advise'
      • on average, senior civil servants serve 20 years and therefore have lots of knowledge in the area which they share with the Minister
    • The minister is the one who is elected into the House of Commons and selected by the HoC
    • Ministerial responsibility
      • Essentially the  Minister is held responsible under this theory therefore they should be able to justify the reasons why they have chosen each policy that is put in place
    • Ministers are the ones who make the decision and the Civil Servants try and establish a way it can be put into practise
