Give Green Paper a chance;Letter

13th March 1998 at 00:00
The Green Paper, The Learning Age; a renaissance for a new Britain, launched last week, is a declaration of intent; a consultative document. Nothing more.

Critics should stop trying to make political capital on the strength of its unanswered questions and, instead, ask how they can best help in the consultative process.

After all, anything that might offer a million people the opportunity to live more fulfilled lives through improved work skills or retraining for new jobs should be welcomed with open arms.
