Big Society

Asked if the Prime Minister was disappointed that Liverpool had pulled out of the Vanguard scheme, the PMS replied that we were currently talking to the people involved in running the project. The project was not run by the council and some of the other Vanguard projects did not have any council involvement. All of the Vanguard projects had come about because people had come to the Government and suggested that these schemes should go ahead. So these were not central Government initiatives.

The PMS added that what the Government had agreed to do was to look at where there might be barriers and problems that impeded these local initiatives. Asked if Liverpool Council were in a position to pull out, the PMS said that it would be wrong to think that this was a Government initiative that the council had pulled out of. This was a local initiative that the Government had offered to support.
