The Cabinet Office

  • Peter Madgwick
Part of the Contemporary Political Studies book series (CONTPOLSTUD)


Number 10 Downing Street connects by a broad passage and a locked green baize door to the Cabinet Office. The locked door (to which the Cabinet Secretary and the Prime Minister’s Principal Private Secretary have keys) emphasises the distinctiveness and integrity of the position of the Prime Minister. The Cabinet Office, with a total staff of 750 or so, overflows into the Old Treasury Building. It is in all but name a Department of State.
