A wire story in the Independent discussing a report on public services in the Sunday Times yesterday suggests the long-awaited ‘open public services’ white paper will be circulated to ministers this week ahead of full publication next month.
As well as discussing mutualisation, the paper is likely to echo the recent NHS reforms listening exercise and will offer far greater compass for employee ownership and individual empowerment.
Downing Street has confirmed that it intends to publish the White Paper before the Parliamentary recess at the end of July.
“It is expected to come before the summer recess. It will look at how we take forward reform across the public services,” a No 10 spokesman said.
