§ Mr. Ioan Evans
asked the Prime Minister what further proposals Her Majesty's Government have for changes in the structure of the welfare state.
§ The Prime Minister
We have no plans for changes in the structure of the welfare state. But we are determined to give individuals more choice in the provision of welfare services, and more freedom to exercise responsibility for their well being. We also want to achieve greater efficiency, better value for money, and better management in the welfare services. We want more money to go to the services people need and those they want, and less into waste and inefficiency.
