New opportunities - fair chances for the future

This very readable command paper (Cm 7533) recently arrived on my desk. In the forward by the Prime Minister he states
"A Britain where everyone should be able to say that their destiny is not written for them, but written by them."
The Command paper is about what the Government can do for everyone in the global slowdown, to be ready and able to come through the downtime faster and stronger. A series of case studies shows how the Government is addressing this, for example
Supporting child development
Investing in children's schooling
Investing in young adults
Supporting the families
Empowering communities.
An annex sets out the most important milestones for the policies announced within this Command paper.
