The Minister for the Cabinet Office has today recommended Peter Riddell’s appointment as the Commissioner for Public Appointments to the Privy Council.
Matt Hancock, Minister for the Cabinet Office said:
Public appointments cover some of the most important roles in the country, and I am delighted to say Peter Riddell will be the next Commissioner for Public Appointments.
This will be a challenging role. Peter’s distinguished record makes him ideally suited. I very much look forward to working with him to introduce greater transparency and tackle the bureaucracy around public appointments to help attract a diverse range of high calibre people to serve their country in these important roles.
