GET RID OF MACHINERY OF GOVERNMENT

"Machinery of government arrangements are not relevant to statutory agencies and indeed some public servants may never face a MoG. We need to take all references to MoGs out of this unit if its to be a core."

Remove almost all parliament-related KE

"Most of the information relating to parliamentary processes is completely irrelevant to frontline officers. They will never need to know the difference between bicameral and unicameral parliaments, or parliamentary processes."
