I feel you've avoided the crux of my question, so I'll rephrase, my friend works in the accounting department of our local council, by his own admission 90% of his job could be automated by software. Would you support this automation if it left him and his collegues losing their jobs with a decade of skills that are now redundant.

If digital processes replace jobs from the public sector making it smaller in head count, is this something you are happy to push forward with?

Its the easy answer I was expecting, but ask any automation engineer or AI expert and I'm pretty sure they would argue in the near future given the free reign and political will that they could automate away jobs quicker than the civil service can create or train jobs meaning pushing forward at full speed would result in a lower headcount.
