Reflects on the nature of ethics in public service; considers the essence of decisions, constraints on these and pressures from outside of and within the administrative system; looks at the implications of the system of government and its constitution for ethics. Discusses the particular issue of public personnel administration, pointing to well-publicized cases related to professional standards in the UK public service; ranges across pre-entry education, post-entry socialization, training and provisions which – it might be hoped – resolve matters of conscience for officers. Sets all this in the context of the effects of new public management and difficulties that are arising from an ethical dimension.
