Fictional General Assistance Department was created to help other ministries with often trivial problems. Incompetent civil servants that are running it get into trouble everytime they try to do their job. But most of the time they just try to look like they are doing any job.
Richard Lamb and his new "number one" Deryck Lennox-Brown are tackling the problems put in front of them with usual lack of skills.
