Hello!

I would be very grateful if you could help me to gather data on the undergradute degrees held by senior ministers and civil servants.

I need this data for my own work, but I would like this to be a free public resource for anyone who wants it. I think it deserves to exist because the subjects studied by our leaders do make a real difference.

This sheet contains three key tabs 'Cabinet Secretaries', 'Permanent Secretaries' and 'Special Advisors'. In each one I'm trying to capture information on the last five people to hold the top elected job, and the top civil service job.

Please feel free to start adding data anywhere - any tiny scrap of data on any one of these senior people, past or present, is valuable.

I've already started, as you can see. To communicate with me please leave a comment on a cell, or email me at tom@tomsteinberg.co.uk
