“The politicisation of civil service is something that I believe the civil service public rules actually is very explicit about,” he said. “So it’s a question of enforcement on the part of the leadership of the civil service and public service generally.
“I believe if the Head of Service chooses to deal with that, we would work with that to ensure that she achieves the objectives of maintaining a neutral civil service.”
