Archbishop of Canterbury

Asked if the PM agreed with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s view on the Big Society, the PMS said that they clearly disagreed.

Asked what the PM thought the Big Society was, the PMS explained that principle of the Big Society was that when there was a problem, the answer was not always government action or new laws and that through community action and engagement results could be achieved. The PMS went on to say that parts of today’s speech were about individual responsibility, encouraging people to do the right thing and rewarding people who work hard. We should not always assume that the answer to every problem is action by the state.
