This chapter examines the implementation of a ‘modernisation’ agenda in the Labour government's rural policy in Great Britain. It describes the work of the Cabinet Office Performance and Innovation Unit (PIU) in preparing for the 2000 Rural White Paper and the establishment of the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (Defra). The chapter also discusses Lord Haskins' recommendations as to how to simplify the delivery of rural programmes and how to achieve Defra's rural priorities and targets cost-effectively.
