Weekly Information Bulletin: 19th October 2002

WHITE PAPERS AND GREEN PAPERS
RECEIVED SINCE LAST BULLETIN

WHITE PAPERS are issued by the Government as statements of policy, and often set out proposals for legislative changes, which may be debated before a Bill is introduced. Some White Papers may invite comments.

GREEN PAPERS set out for discussion, proposals which are still at a formative stage.

All CONSULTATIVE and DISCUSSION documents which reach the House of Commons Information Office are included in this section. Inclusion in the Bulletin is for record purposes.

Not all discussion papers are published and put on general release: some are sent only to a predetermined list of consultees. This is a matter solely for the Department concerned.

Papers to which an ISBN and price are appended are normally available through The Stationery Office. For others, application should be made to the department concerned.
