The Better Government Initiative (BGI) was formed as a response to widespread concerns about the practical difficulties that government today faces as it seeks to run the country against a background of rapid change. The BGI aims to canvass the widest possible range of views, and to publish concrete recommendations that will be of practical interest not only to the three major parties, but also to the public more widely.
The Better Government Initiative (BGI) was set up on the initiative of Sir Christopher Foster, a former professor of economics and adviser to ministers from the 1970s to the 1990s. His book "British Government in Crisis" (2005) drew attention to many of the issues that the Group has been considering.
Our recent submissions to the Political and Constitutional Reform Committee inquiry into improving the quality of legislation have been well received and our recommendations feature prominently in their report.
