The Treasury is at the centre of management in British central government. It is essential to the economy of the UK and it is still, in many respects, the central department in Whitehall. Richard A. Chapman both clarifies and consolidates existing knowledge about the development of the Treasury's role in public policy making and makes an original contribution to knowledge about the current work of the Treasury. The Contributions Agency and the Royal Mint The Structure and organisation of the Treasury was radically changed in 1995 following a new statement of its aim, mission and objectives. These changes are explained here, with details of its new directorate and team structure.

'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
