HC Deb 30 July 1997 vol 299 c313W
22. Mrs. Mahon

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on his better government programme. [9729]

Dr. David Clark

The White Paper on Better Government will set out how we intend to meet our commitment to rebuild the bond of trust between Government and the people, by opening Government out and by providing accessible services which better match the way that people need live their lives.

The White Paper will address four challenges for Government as we enter the new millennium:

  • Cleaning up politics;
  • Getting good results and rooting out waste;
  • Listening to the people;
  • Working together across institutional boundaries.
