Discussions on Policy

summary:

The challenges and problems facing Britain in the 1980s are very different from those of the 1970s. The political agenda for the 1990s is starting to be formed by a new generation with new priorities and values, the products of economic success and high expectations. What is now needed is to ensure that economic success continues; to deal with the social issues that have not yet been the subject of reform; and to handle those challenges constructively and effectively.

This book is a contribution to the debate about how these objectives can be achieved. It is the result of discussions of six policy areas by Leon Brittan and a large group of specialists at a series of seminars held at the Policy Studies Institute in 1988.
