Prepaid capitation versus fee-for-service reimbursement in a Medicaid population. (1/77)

Utilization of health resources by 37,444 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a capitated health maintenance organization was compared with that of 227,242 Medicaid recipients enrolled in a traditional fee-for-service system over a 1-year period (1983-1984) in the state of Kentucky. Primary care providers in the capitated program had financial incentives to reduce downstream costs like specialist referral, emergency room use, and hospitalizations. The average number of physician visits was similar for both groups (4.47/year in the capitated program; 5.09/year in the fee-for-service system). However, the average number of prescriptions (1.9 versus 4.9 per year), average number of hospital admissions per recipient (0.11 versus 0.22 per year), and average number of hospital days per 1,000 recipients (461 versus 909 per year) were 5% to 60% lower in the capitated group than in the fee-for-service group. The Citicare capitated program resulted in a dramatic reduction in healthcare resource utilization compared with the concurrent fee-for-service system for statewide Medicaid recipients.  (+info)

Subspecialist referrals in an academic, pediatric setting: rationale, rates, and compliance. (2/77)

Appropriate referrals reduce healthcare costs and enhance patient satisfaction. We evaluated the subspecialty referral pattern of a managed care general pediatric office over a 4-month period. Three-hundred-forty-six referrals (267 meeting inclusion criteria) to 24 subspecialties were generated during 4,219 office visits, with five subspecialties receiving 59% of the referrals. The main objective of each referral was management (100), diagnostic assistance (75), special procedure (63), or a combination (29). Patients kept less than half of the referral appointments, with the highest (80%) and lowest (28%) compliance rates observed in cardiology and ophthalmology, respectively. Appointments made within four weeks of the referral were more likely to be kept than those with greater lag time (P = 0.001). The subspecialists prepared written, post-consultation responses to the referring physician in 73% of cases. Presumptive and post-consultation diagnoses were congruent in 78% of those cases in which both diagnoses were noted. Overall, the managed care format enabled our practice to track referral outcomes. The subspecialists' written responses also allowed for an educational exchange between physicians. Compliance with referral appointments is a substantial problem that needs to be addressed.  (+info)

The impact of welfare reform on parents' ability to care for their children's health. (3/77)

OBJECTIVES: Most of the national policy debate regarding welfare assumed that if middle-income mothers could balance work while caring for their children's health and development, mothers leaving welfare for work should be able to do so as well. Yet, previous research has not examined the conditions faced by mothers leaving welfare for work. METHODS: Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, this study examined the availability of benefits that working parents commonly use to meet the health and developmental needs of their children; paid sick leave, vacation leave, and flexible hours. RESULTS: In comparison with mothers who had never received welfare, mothers who had been on Aid to Families with Dependent Children were more likely to be caring for at least 1 child with a chronic condition (37% vs 21%, respectively). Yet, they were more likely to lack sick leave for the entire time they worked (36% vs 20%) and less likely to receive other paid leave or flexibility. CONCLUSIONS: If current welfare recipients face similar conditions when they return to work, many will face working conditions that make it difficult or impossible to succeed in the labor force at the same time as meeting their children's health and developmental needs.  (+info)

Medicaid recipients' experiences under mandatory managed care. (4/77)

OBJECTIVE: To describe Medicaid recipients' experiences with the outcomes of access, quality, and satisfaction in a mandatory managed care (MC) program. STUDY DESIGN: A qualitative case study design with content analysis of narrative focus group (FG) data, which was part of a comprehensive program evaluation that also involved pre- and postsurveys and analyses of cost and utilization data. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Six FG interviews were conducted in the autumn of 1997 with 31 women on the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Participants were recruited from a randomly ordered list of women who had responded to a 1996 premanaged care survey regarding their or their child's healthcare experiences under traditional Medicaid. RESULTS: There was general consensus across all focus groups on a range of issues, including improvements in access to primary care and continuity of care. Overall, few participants expressed discontent with restriction of choice of provider and on MC policies regarding use of the emergency room. There was no consensus on what factors influenced choice of MC plan, although convenience of location was named most frequently. An unanticipated outcome was the recurrent theme across all focus groups of disrespectful treatment by healthcare personnel, especially under traditional Medicaid, which had declined somewhat under managed care. CONCLUSIONS: These contextual accounts identify specific features of a mandatory Medicaid MC program that are viewed as improvements over traditional Medicaid. Specific features that were dissatisfying can be addressed to improve both enrollee satisfaction and the transition to managed care for Medicaid recipients.  (+info)

Medicaid managed care payment rates in 1998. (5/77)

This paper reports on a new survey of state Medicaid managed care payment rates. We collected rate data for Medicaid's Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC)/Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and poverty-related populations and made adjustments to make the data comparable across states. The results show a slightly more than twofold variation in capitation rates among states, caused primarily by fee-for-service spending levels and demographics. There is a very low correlation between the variation in Medicaid capitation rates among states and the variations in Medicare's adjusted average per capita cost. The data are not sufficient to answer questions about the adequacy of rates but should help to further policy discussions and research.  (+info)

Health insurance coverage after welfare. (6/77)

This DataWatch examines the health insurance coverage of former welfare recipients who left welfare between January 1995 and mid-1997, using data from the 1997 National Survey of America's Families. Although the majority of women who left welfare were working, only 33 percent of these women obtained health coverage through their jobs. Rates of uninsurance increase with the number of months since leaving welfare and with declines in Medicaid coverage. A year or more after leaving welfare, 49 percent of women and 30 percent of children were uninsured.  (+info)

Mandated managed care for blind and disabled Medicaid beneficiaries in a county-organized health system: implementation challenges and access issues. (7/77)

OBJECTIVES: The challenges of Medicaid managed care organizations that serve blind and disabled members are reviewed. Beneficiary satisfaction and access to care are assessed, and access problems are identified and resolved or minimized to the greatest degree possible. STUDY DESIGN: Formative evaluation consisting of a mailed survey and follow-up telephone outreach contacts. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A written survey was sent to more than 18,000 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiary members who were blind or disabled, with 5574 recipients responding. Of these, 1981 members identified issues that warranted 2106 follow-up telephone calls. RESULTS: Survey responses showed that beneficiaries had limited experience with managed care and were generally satisfied with access to primary care. The healthcare system used the study findings to develop focused training programs and materials, to initiate a special needs liaison program, and to revise guidelines to simplify and standardize authorization procedures for obtaining medical supplies and repairing equipment. CONCLUSIONS: Factors found to be associated with the success of a Medicaid managed care program serving blind and disabled beneficiaries include educating the members and providers for better understanding of managed care, incorporating collaborative service improvement activities, and documenting trends.  (+info)

Employment outcomes among AFDC recipients treated for substance abuse in Washington State. (8/77)

In 1996, Congress passed sweeping welfare reform, abolishing the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program. Each state now administers its own welfare-to-work program under broad federal guidelines, which require eligible adult recipients to work or perform community service. High-risk welfare recipients, especially those with chemical dependency problems, face significant obstacles in their efforts to achieve greater self-sufficiency under the new welfare-to-work programs. State databases were used to track employment outcomes for AFDC clients admitted to treatment for chemical dependency in Washington State during a two-year period. Exposure to treatment was associated with a greater likelihood of becoming employed and with increased earnings for those who became employed. Ensuring that welfare recipients with substance abuse problems have access to appropriate treatment and vocational services is critical if welfare-to-work programs are to promote greater economic self-sufficiency.  (+info)

Background: It is important not to ignore the impact of parental cancer on children and this is where oncology and palliative care nurses can play a key role; providing support to parents as a regular aspect of oncological nursing care. Objectives: This study explored the experience, needs and confidence of nurses working in acute cancer services when supporting parents with cancer who have dependent children. Methods: Two focus group interviews were conducted with oncology and palliative care nurses in one acute hospital trust in the south of England. Results: Nurses described how they identified with their patients as a parent themselves. This identification with patients added to the emotionally charged context of care and resulted in nurse avoidance of the troubling issue of dependent children. Nurses identified the importance of peer support with regular opportunities to reflect on practice when dealing with issues relevant to parents and children. Conclusions: Oncology and palliative care ...

Medicaid coverage has expanded considerably with the passage of the Affordable Care Act and other policy changes, reaching more adults with behavioral health needs. States may now expand Medicaid eligibility to include almost all adults at or below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL), or $27,821 for a family of three in 2016, and receive enhanced federal funding to finance the cost of this expansion. Traditionally, individuals could only be eligible for Medicaid if they both met income requirements and fell into a "category" of covered people, such as parents of dependent children or individuals with disabilities, which includes a mental illness that qualifies someone for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These rules excluded many low-income adults without dependent children who had complex health needs, including substance use disorder or other behavioral health conditions, but did not meet criteria for having a disability. Low-income individuals who were historically ineligible for ...
U.S. Army service members children are confronted with continuous relocation. For this reason, many army posts have established family oriented services which cater to some of the needs unique to army dependent children. Many posts provide families with programs provide families with programs such as scouting and sports; however, there are no child participatory theatrical programs available to all installation children. This thesis reports the methodology used in establishing Children in Theatre, a theatrical arts program at Fort Leonard Wood U.S. Army post. The purpose of the thesis is four-fold: first, familiarize others who will continue the program; second, encourage continued dialogue about theatrical programs for children on Fort Leonard Wood; third, blue print possible avenues for other army installations; and fourth, argue for the needs and benefits of theatrical programs for military dependent children. In spite of working through a system fraught with stifling government regulation and
Whether the Tuition Remission benefit is taxable is based upon the Program in which you or your eligible family member is enrolled, according to IRS regulations.. In general, you do not have to pay income tax on Tuition Remission benefits for undergraduate degree programs for yourself, your spouse and your dependent children (age 23 or younger as of the end of the calendar year). Because the IRS does not recognize the tax exemption of benefits extended to domestic partners, all Tuition Remission for registered domestic partners and their dependent children is considered taxable.. Under IRS regulations, up to $5,250 per year of graduate Tuition Remission benefits for employees are non-taxable. This means the first $5,250 of your graduate tuition costs will not be taxed. Anything over $5,250 will be considered taxable income, and the tax on the value of the benefit will be withheld from your paycheck. If the graduate level course work is job-related, it will be excluded from taxable income.. Under ...

AMERICA is embarking upon a dramatic new course in the way it provides assistance to our nations poorest families and their children. Recently enacted federal welfare reforms have altered both the purpose and the form of the nations principal cash-assistance program, Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC). Retitled Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the program is no longer to serve as a long-term replacement for parents earnings. Rather, aid is now to be used to promote long-term self-sufficiency. The new law also gives states the responsibility for determining virtually all the standards and requirements for their TANF programs. Although in most states dramatic changes have not yet happened, the opportunity for revolutionary reform has never been greater. ...

Medicaid was established in 1965 through the Title XIX of the Social Security Act. This federal-state program was developed to finance health care for low-income persons, specifically the categorically needy and the medically needy. Categorically needy are those receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) (now Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and those who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) because they are aged, blind, or disabled. All states must cover the categorically needy. The medically needy are those who have enough money to live on, but not enough to pay for medical care. In 1972, an amendment to the Social Security Act added family planning services to the list of essential services. One purpose of the federal government was to ensure medical care for those on welfare, predominantly single, poor women, and their children. The link to cash assistance is a defining characteristic of the program and makes this an entitlement program.. The Medicaid program, ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This article examines the effects of the health insurance coverage mandate for young adults on household precautionary savings by focusing on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. The ACA dependent coverage mandate allows young adults to remain on their parents health insurance plans until their 26th birthday. Using the Survey of Income and Program Participation data, I find that the ACA mandate reduced precautionary savings for households with both parental employer-sponsored health insurance and dependent children aged 19-25 years. These households significantly reduced liquid assets by $897 after ACA, but they did not reduce savings in tax-deferred accounts or real estate assets.
A primary goal of transfer programs to the non-aged, non-disabled poor in the United States is to improve the well-being of children in poor families. Thus it is surprising that most of the considerable research which has been devoted to the study of transfer programs focuses on the incentive effects of the programs for parents rather than on the question of whether parental participation in such programs measurably benefits children. This paper begins to fill this gap in the literature by examining the relationship between a mothers participation during pregnancy in Aid to Families with Dependent Children, the Food Stamp Program, or housing assistance, and one of the least controversial measures of child welfare: the birth weight. We do not find any statistically significant relationship ...

The summer break is a magical world of fascinating experiences for children, who enjoy the long days of vacation and fun, of frolic and adventure. At the same time, it can be quite a headache for parents, who are kept busy figuring out how to keep the children occupied and who will supervise them when the adults go to work and take care of other occupations.. This "headache" is twice as daunting when we are speaking of children with special needs and impairments, who need extra attention and even closer supervision. Their world is cramped into the limited scope of their families and they get lost in the lack of routine, as dependent children who constantly need a loving look, a caress, and help in mobility. Their inability to adapt to to an unstructured day leads to chaos and misery both on the part of other family members and the child himself. The house is continually upside-down. Siblings cannot invite a friend over for a game or even read more than a page of a book without a sudden avalanche ...
With regular participation in a group activity, children learn respectful group behavior. One behavioral characteristic I have noticed in many homeschooled children is their desire to do things their own way. This a a desired trait which serves children well now and in adulthood. Group settings tend to lessen this trait and sometimes its to such a level which can create a dependent child not willing to step outside the box. Finding a balance between independence and being slightly reserved can be learned through group activities. In addition, by being patient and listening the child may be surprised with new interesting information when they least expected it ...
There are few same-gender programs, but the few that there are have programs to meet the specific needs that women have, such as those that have dependent children. There is also a growing concern for older women who have not had addiction problems in the past; those who have lost many people they love, have declining health, and have access to prescription drugs, may fall into addiction. Women who are retiring may be lost and confused now that they do not feel they have meaning in their life (Matheson, 2008).. One concern that has been reported by women when in a treatment program that is co-ed is that they are afraid of being a target and being harassed sexually by the male staff members and the males in the group; this is a concern because there is still such a bad stigma attached to females with addictive disorders and who are in treatment (Matheson, 2008).. Women face many problems other than their addiction when they seek treatment. In the past, when women had a problem with addiction, ...

Due to the difficulty and complexity of the matter, parents take over the management of the disease in children and, at least in the initial stage of the disease, also in teenagers. This requires additional duties and new regulation of life, often adjusting the daily schedule and professional commitments to the needs of self-control of diabetes in children [8]. The need for constant involvement in the care of the sick child and the need to control glycaemia, even at night, especially in small, dependent children, leads to a life of constant readiness, being "on guard", and thus to significant stress, strain, and disruption of relations in relationships [9, 10]. The new situation and the burden of chronic disease may cause emotional problems in parents, especially mothers, such as guilt, anxiety disorders, or depressive states. While this is understandable in the initial stage of the disease, shortly after the diagnosis, when the process of acceptance from the shock phase to constructive ...

Last night everything seemed well enough. Reagan was still tense and doing a lot of the movements when I put her to bed. I was hoping shed just drift off to sleep once in a dark, soothing environment. Didnt happen. I woke at 1:30am to find her still wide awake. I put her in our bed where she laughed and kicked us until she finally drifted off to sleep. But when she woke up this morning the tide had changed. She woke crying and has cried every waking moment since. Poor thing shes just completely and totally miserable. She threw up a few times this morning...a lot of foam mainly (so I decided to give her some periactin and now she hasnt peed all day). With all the chaos, I was having second thoughts about going in for her nephrology appt today but we went anyway...thankfully she slept most of the time. We waited in the waiting room for what seemed like eternity (especially considering we were in a super rush to get back home for our yearly Medically Dependent Childrens Program review). ...

GAO discussed its views on the State and Local Government Cost Estimate Act, focusing on federal and state approaches for estimating the cost of proposed legislation which imposes costs on lower levels of government. GAO noted that: (1) the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) usually has very little time to assess the state and local impacts of proposed legislation; (2) proposed legislation subject to estimates covers a wide variety of subjects; (3) federal estimates take priority over state and local estimates; (4) states face similar constraints in assessing the impact of proposed legislation; (5) it believes that the CBO approach to estimates is reasonable; and (6) it supports the acts reauthorization.

The first major Congressional step that could be taken immediately to bolster PDMP programs and combat the growing prescription drug health problem would be to reauthorize the National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting Act (NASPER). We applaud the U.S. House of Representatives for passing its NASPER reauthorization bill, H.R. 1725, and encourage the Senate to act on this important legislation swiftly. This program was created in 2005 to allow the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to award grants to states to establish or enhance PDMPs, and establish best practices. NASPER has not been funded since a prohibition was included in the FY2011 continuing resolution (P.L. 112-10); however, we are confident that reauthorization and full funding of NASPER would be a significant step toward reversing the current trajectory of abuse.. We thank you for your consideration of this request, and hope that you will consider each of the stakeholders on this letter to be partners in ...

The Colorado Works Program is a work-focused public assistance program that started on July 1,1997. Colorado Works can provide individuals and families with temporary assistance, support services including work supports, and education and training.The assistance and supports provided are designed to help Coloradans on their journey to become independent of government assistance and ultimately self-sufficient.. The program is also designed to give county departments of human services the ability and flexibility to work with families to meet their needs. The Colorado Works Program varies from county to county. Each county designs and runs the Colorado Works program and when doing so must follow all federal and state laws and rules.. Your county may refer to the benefits you receive as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits. This is because TANF is the federal program that took the place of the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) Program.. ...
This past week, initial briefs on the validity of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) (PPACA) were filed in the Supreme Court. Together, 26 states argued that the expansion of Medicaid under PPACA is unprecedented and infringes on the powers reserved to the states under the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.. It is true that PPACA expands the Medicaid program to require states to make certain benefits available to people who were never eligible before. When Medicaid was enacted in 1965, states were not required to participate, and eligibility was limited to categories of individuals who were eligible for cash assistance- Aid to Families with Dependent children (AFDC), Old Age Assistance and state-sponsored assistance to disabled adults.. Over the years, Congress has raised the income limits for mandatory Medicaid coverage of low-income children and pregnant women and certain groups of individuals with disabilities. The states argue that most additions to ...

Offering government food assistance to the lowest income Americans dates back to the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and has continued into the 21st century.[32] In FY 2011, the budget for the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, which is responsible for the major feeding programs, was $107 billion. The largest single food assistance program in the country is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the provisions for which are contained in a Farm Bill that is re-authorized by Congress and signed by the president every five years. Benefits to SNAP recipients cost approximately $75 billion in 2012. Largely uncontroversial for most of its history, the SNAP program was targeted for major cuts by members of the House of Representatives in the 2012 Farm Bill re-authorization attempt.[33] House leaders also endeavored to separate the SNAP program from the Farm Bill, splitting the long-standing coalition of urban and rural legislators who traditionally backed the renewals of funding ...
In different administrative and organizational forms, the Food for Peace program of the United States has provided food assistance around the world for more than 50 years. Approximately 3 billion people in 150 countries have benefited directly from U.S. food assistance[citation needed]. The Office of Food for Peace within the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the U.S. Government's largest provider of overseas food assistance. The food assistance programming is funded primarily through the Food for Peace Act. The Office of Food for Peace also receives International Disaster Assistance Funds through the Foreign Assistance Act (FAA) that can be used in emergency settings (more information below). While U.S. food aid started out in the 1950s as a means to donate surplus U.S. commodities, the U.S. government moved away from this decades ago, and now purchases food from American farmers through a competitive process. The Office of Food for Peace donates ...
Atwater was contrasting this with Ronald Reagan's campaign, which he felt "was devoid of any kind of racism, any kind of reference." However, others like U.S. law professor and author of the 2014 book Dog Whistle Politics Ian Haney-López described Reagan as "blowing a dog whistle" when the candidate told stories about "Cadillac-driving 'welfare queens' and 'strapping young bucks' buying T-bone steaks with food stamps" while he was campaigning for the presidency.[24][25][26] He argues that such rhetoric pushes middle-class white Americans to vote against their economic self-interest in order to punish "undeserving minorities" who, they believe, are receiving too much public assistance at their expense. According to López, conservative middle-class whites, convinced by powerful economic interests that minorities are the enemy, supported politicians who promised to curb illegal immigration and crack down on crime but inadvertently also voted for policies that favor the extremely rich, such as ...
In the Roman Empire, the first emperor Augustus provided the Cura Annonae or grain dole for citizens who could not afford to buy food every month. Social welfare was enlarged by the Emperor Trajan.[2] Trajan's program brought acclaim from many, including Pliny the Younger.[3] The Song dynasty government (c.1000AD in China) supported multiple programs which could be classified as social welfare, including the establishment of retirement homes, public clinics, and paupers' graveyards. According to economist Robert Henry Nelson, "The medieval Roman Catholic Church operated a far-reaching and comprehensive welfare system for the poor..."[4][5]. Early welfare programs in Europe included the English Poor Law of 1601, which gave parishes the responsibility for providing welfare payments to the poor.[6] This system was substantially modified by the 19th-century Poor Law Amendment Act, which introduced the system of workhouses.. Public assistance programs were not called welfare until the early 20th ...

... is the area of public policy concerning how food is produced, processed, distributed, and purchased. Food policies are designed to influence the operation of the food and agriculture system. This often includes decision-making around production and processing techniques, marketing, availability, utilization and consumption of food, in the interest of meeting or furthering social objectives. Food policy can be promulgated on any level, from local to global, and by a government agency, business, or organization. Food policymakers engage in activities such as regulation of food-related industries, establishing eligibility standards for food assistance programs for the poor, ensuring safety of the food supply, food labeling, and even the qualifications of a product to be considered organic. Most food policy is initiated at the domestic level for purposes of ensuring a safe and adequate food supply for the citizenry. In a developing nation, there are three main objectives for food policy: ...

Curtin made very heavy use of newspapers and broadcast media, especially through press conferences, speeches, and newsreels. Australians gained a sense it was a people's war in which they were full participants.[32] In terms of social policy, the Curtin Government enacted a wide range of progressive social reforms during its time in office. Pensions were introduced for deserted wives and widows, while the establishment of the Women's Employment Board led to increased wages for some women during the war. Aboriginal Australians were provided with significantly increased entitlement to welfare benefits, while maternity allowances were extended. In addition, pensions for the elderly and infirm were increased, while reciprocal arrangements with New Zealand were introduced regarding old age and invalid pensions.[33] In 1942, temporary public employees became eligible to apply to join the Commonwealth superannuation scheme if they had been employed for no less than five years and were certified as ...
One version of this legislation, the Farm, Nutrition, and Bioenergy Act of 2007 was passed by the United States House of Representatives on July 27, 2007. Despite opposition from some senators, including a failed amendment proposal by Senator Richard Lugar and a veto threat by President Bush, the Senate version of the bill, called the Food and Energy Security Act, was passed by the Senate Agriculture Committee on October 25, 2007, and later by the full Senate on December 14.[3][4] In late April 2008, congressional negotiators finally reached a deal to reconcile the House and Senate bills. The deal increased spending on food stamps and other food programs while mostly maintaining the current farm subsidies, despite record farm profits.[5]. On May 15, the House and Senate passed the bill, but President Bush issued a veto on May 21. The House voted to overturn the president's veto shortly thereafter, and with the margins by which the bill was passed, a Senate override also occurred; so the Congress ...
In 2008, the farm bill was passed as the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008. The bill included approximately $100 billion in annual spending for Department of Agriculture programs, around 80 percent of which was allocated for food stamps and other nutritional programs.[6][8][9] The 2008 Farm bill increased spending to $288Bn therefore causing controversy at the time by increasing the budget deficit. It increased subsidies for biofuels which the World Bank has named as one of three most important contributors, along with high fuel prices and price speculation, to the 2007-2008 world food price crisis.[10] President George Bush had vetoed the 2008 bill due to its size and cost. However, the veto was overridden by Congress.[11] The 2008 bill was also publicly controversial due to its high cost and the uneven distribution of subsidy money among farmers. The bill was 47 percent more expensive than the 2003 bill, and, over the previous ten years, 10 percent of farmers had received 75 percent ...

Also crucial to thinking was the Abercrombie Plan for London (1944), which envisaged moving a million and a half people from London to new and expanded towns. (A similar plan was developed for the Clyde Valley in 1946 to combat similar problems faced in Glasgow.) Together these committees reflected a strong consensus to halt the uncontrolled sprawl of London and other large cities. For some, this consensus was tied up with a concern for social welfare reform (typified by the Beveridge Report), as typified in the motto if we can build better, we can live better; for others, such as John Betjeman it was a more conservative objection to the changing character of existing towns. Following the building of Borehamwood, Middlesex, 12 miles north-west of central London, the first in a ring of major "first generation" New Towns around London (1946) were Stevenage, Hertfordshire, 33 miles to the north of London, and Basildon, Essex, 32 miles east of London along the River Thames. Hertfordshire built four ...
