NotesNews: "The true moderniser of the Conservative Party turns out to be a 79-year-old. Agree or disagree with Michael Heseltine's weighty report on economic growth, there can be no dispute that it challenges the laissez-faire orthodoxy of the past three decades, an orthodoxy that still holds the Tory leadership in its thrall. Not that Heseltine's proposals are surprising. His report is almost a memoir of his consistently held and passionately expressed views. He is calling for a huge transfer of cash from the Treasury to local institutions and the establishment of a National Growth Council. He challenges the idea that sweeping deregulation and tax cuts will almost alone generate growth. ... Fast-forward three decades and the children of Thatcher - David Cameron and George Osborne - deserve some credit for commissioning the report from Heseltine. .. " Steve Richards, The Independent
