Commitment to reduce public sector bureaucracy

Sadly the aim “to reduce the enormous quantity of meetings, co-ordinations, permissions, conciliations, dispositions, regulations, circulars, etc, etc.” is in Cuba rather than in the UK public sector.

It will be interesting to see if Raul Castro can deliver on his commitment and breathe new life into Cuba’s centrally planned economy. Closer to home the jury is still out on Gordon Brown’s own commitment to regulatory reform. There does appear to be continuing threat to the independence of foundation hospitals.
