Presentation Current Governement Prime Ministers (20th century)

The Cabinet Office
The Cabinet Office sits at the very centre of government and, with the Treasury, provides the ‘head office’ of government. The Cabinet Office has an overarching purpose of Making government work better.
The Department has three core functions that enable it to achieve this overarching purpose:
Supporting the Prime Minister – to define and deliver the Government's objectives.
Supporting the Cabinet – to drive the coherence, quality and delivery of policy and operations across departments.
Strengthening the Civil Service – to ensure the civil service is organised effectively and has the capability in terms of skills, values and leadership to deliver the Government's objectives.

The ministers based in the Cabinet Office provide strategic leadership to the Department and coordinate government policy and strategy.
Hilary Armstrong MP – Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office
Hazel Blears MP – Minister without Portfolio
Pat McFadden MP – Parliamentary Secretary
Ed Miliband MP – Parliamentary Secretary



The Prime Minister
Government Cabinets have met in the same room since 1856, when it was called the Council Chamber.
The Prime Minister chairs the meetings, selects its members, and also recommends their appointment as ministers by the Monarch.
The present cabinet has 23 members (21 MPs and two peers), but a further three ministers attend the meetings, two peers and one MP. The Secretary of the Cabinet is responsible for preparing records of its discussions and decisions.
