Civil servants must return to the office, says Jacob Rees-Mogg

Ministers are reportedly being told to order civil servants back to work as part of a drive to ensure taxpayer-funded offices are at “full capacity”.Up to three quarters of staff are still working from home, according to The Telegraph, with officials who refuse to return to the office accused by Whitehall sources of failing to “pull their weight”.Jacob Rees-Mogg, the minister for Government efficiency, has written to all secretaries of state saying they must send a “clear message” to civil servants to bring about a “rapid return” to face-to-face work.
