Analyses the Treasury's role in public policy making and makes an original contribution to knowledge about the current work of the Treasury.

The book focuses on three main areas:

* the development of the Treasury from earliest times to the present

* the current structure and organization of the Treasury following the radical changes which took place in 1995 as a result of the 1994 Fundamental Expenditure Review

* the Treasury's role in the financing and responsibility of Next Step Agencies, including brief case studies of the Civil Service College, the Contributions Agency and the Royal Mint.


'Good, basic introductions to key government departments are hard to come by. Richard Chapman's The Treasury in Public Policy-making is a short text designed to meet this need.'

Colin Thain, The British Journal of Politics and International Relations

"A humane and liberal case for ensuring that 'the ethos of public service' is not lost in a department increasingly concerned with 'accounting methods and the control of public expenditure' and that it is essential that more emphasis is placed on 'the implications of word public' in policy-making."

Colin Thain, The British Journal of Politics and International Relations
