It is a disgrace that we now have 108 ministers, three more than under Labour. I'm sure I remember David Cameron making a promise to reduce their number. He could start by reducing the number of ministers in each department by one at the next reshuffle. At least it would be a start. I doubt whether anyone would notice any difference.
One other thing to note is that if the number of MPs is reduced by 8 per cent, then surely it follows that their should be a commensurate cut in ministerial numbers anyway. Otherwise the Executive will wield even more power over the legislature.
