Petition Start an All-Party Beveridge-Style ‘Futures’ Report

In 1942, with Britain at a low ebb, and no-one sure of the war's outcome, the National Government set up the Beveridge Report.

The Government should work with the House of Commons to immediately agree to support, constitute & resource a new Beveridge-style 'Futures' report, starting straightaway.

More details

We must think and act with foresight over what we want the UK to be like ‘after’.

Beveridge asked what we'd learnt from the 20s/30s. What do we want now? How do we act now to prepare?

Much could be better, after, when the pandemic ends: politics, the economy, social issues, environment, health, etc. However, first reactions may just be relief, gratitude and a 'return to normality’/‘business as usual’.

We need to think bigger and better, now, in preparation for the medium-/long-term future.
