Presented to Parliament by the Secretary of State
for International Development
by Command of Her Majesty November 1997

“Together you and I will begin to build the new society, a society in which each of us has the chance to grow, to achieve, to contribute, to create dignity for ourselves, and not for ourselves alone, but for others also; a society in which each of us has a stake, a share; and we will give back to our children what they deserve - a heritage of hope.”

Tony Blair
April 1997
