Support for All: Families and Relationships

A quick politics lesson: a 'Green Paper' is the name given to a document containing proposals which is issued by a government; while it doesn't change the law, it is often the case that after consultation and feedback from relevant bodies and other political parties, a Green Paper is revised and subsequently turned into legislation.

Today sees the launch of Support for All: the Families and Relationships Green Paper, which contains government plans to help prevent family breakdown, support the roles of fathers and grandparents, and improve flexible working options for parents. You can read a summary of the proposals in this BBC article, while the full text of the Paper is available here.
