A note on sources

The only serious criticism of the first edition of this work was of its apparent reliance on ministerial memoirs. In fact, the primary source for the book is the seminar on Cabinet Government and the National Policy Process organised at the London School of Economics by John Barnes and Anthea Bennett, at which serving and former ministers and senior officials talk about their experience of the system, and which I have attended since 1980. However, since the seminar is held under Chatham House rules, information drawn from it was not attributed in the first edition, and wherever possible I inserted a reference to a published source. I have changed that approach on this edition: where an assertion is made based on LSE seminar evidence for which I can find no parallel published source, it is marked with an asterisk (*).
