Together with former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major and the Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude, Paul du Gay was guest in Gus O’Donnell’s two-part series “In Defence of Bureaucracy”. The first took place the 5th of March 2013 and the second the 12th of March 2013.
 
Former Cabinet Secretary, O'Donnell, argued that the British people should be proud of their Civil Service which has made British bureaucracy the best in the world; and that hasty reform
