Bishop of Leeds asks about government assessment of efficiency in the Civil Service

On 24th March 2022, the Bishop of Leeds asked a question regarding the government’s assessment efficiency and effectiveness during a debate on the reduction of numbers in the Civil Service:

The Lord Bishop of Leeds: My Lords, have the Government made any assessment of the relationship between efficiency, effectiveness and efficacy?

Lord True (Con): I would say to the right reverend Prelate that there are two sides to this coin. One is an efficient service that is more capable of delivering quality public service—we all believe profoundly in the ideal of public service—in a satisfying, effective way. The answer is yes, but I would say that that is not only measured in numbers.
