David Cameron to end 'state monopoly' in provision of public services
"David Cameron is to "completely change" public services, bringing in a "presumption" that private companies, voluntary groups or charities are as able to run schools, hospitals and many other council services as the state.
"Writing in the Daily Telegraph about the plans, to be published in a white paper in the next fortnight, the prime minister says he is seeking to end the "state's monopoly" over public services, with only the security forces and judiciary exempt.
"Private sector bodies will get an automatic right to bid for the bulk of public work. Many elements of the NHS could soon be provided by private firms, schools run by charities and mutuals could take over the provision of council services."
