Is not the truth of the matter that the Home Office has caused endless embarrassment to successive Governments—I can recall Henry Brooke's career being destroyed when he was Home Secretary in the 1960s—and that the Department is currently far too large to be properly organised and maintained either by the permanent secretary or, even more importantly, by the Home Secretary of the moment? Therefore the reforms and changes are welcome.
