2020 Public Service Principles

Here is the launch of ‘Beyond Beveridge’ it is the interim report of the Commission on 2020 Public Services, of which I am a member. It sets out the urgency for change, the limits of our current public services settlement, and the need for a systematic and long-term approach to reform. The report offers a positive vision for 2020 public services, and three policy building blocks to get us there: a shift in culture, a shift in power, and a shift in finance. The report represents the interim findings of our diverse and experienced commission, and the principles on which it will base its final conclusions in summer 2010.
