    ONE of the factors directing fresh attention to the Civil Service at the present time is the realization that much of the success of our plans for dealing with post-war problems will depend upon the way in which the Civil Service carries out its new duties and discharges the much more positive functions which are being demanded of it to-day. That was wel brought out in the debate in the House of Commons on employment policy, and in the report of the Assheton Committee on the Training of Civil Servants. The machinery of government must be adapted to its new tasks. Some re-tooling may be necessary, and it is at least certain that a large part of the Civil Service will require training for its new functions.
