Public Services White Paper

In response to the suggestion that the Public Services White Paper would be delayed, the PMS said that it would be published before the summer recess and that reports speculating that it would be delayed until early autumn were inaccurate.

Asked if proposals would still be in a White Paper, the PMS confirmed that there was no change to the plan to publish a White Paper.

Asked to explain the delay to the White Paper, the PMS reminded the lobby that publication was expected to be before the summer.

Asked why it was important to have a White Paper, the PMS directed the lobby to an article in which the Prime Minister had set out the priorities for the White Paper.

Put that the Government’s enthusiasm for White Papers had been dampened, the PMS said that the Government had been announcing a series of reforms of public services to police, to health, to education. The Government was pressing on with these and getting the job done.
