Further to WAQ77773, on what date did the First Minister delegate responsibility over the civil service to the Permanent Secretary?

Answered by First Minister Answered on 20/02/2019

Delegation for civil service staffing matters was conferred upon the Welsh Government by the UK Government, in 1999 and 2007, and there has been a standing arrangement that the Permanent Secretary assumes responsibility for staffing matters upon appointment. That responsibility was included in the advertisement when the post of Permanent Secretary was last recruited.
