New Labour's countryside

This chapter examines the institutions and structures through which rural policy in Great Britain is devised and delivered at national, regional, and local levels. It suggests that the institutional map of rural policy forged through three successive New Labour governments is markedly different from that which they inherited from the Conservatives in 1997. The chapter discusses the impact of devolution and the Haskins reforms and argues that New Labour has completely transformed the institutional landscape of rural policy.
