"Contributing to good economic policy outcomes. Maintaining a reputation for vigorous, credible and independent economic advice. Being prepared to speak out fearlessly and, if necessary, publicly on policy matters. Preserve these traditions of the Westminster System as regards advice to government at a time when this seems to be under attack, if not decline."
