  ePolitix.com - Frank Field - former welfare minister
Frank Field: Given that we are experiencing the longest boom we've ever had - with two million additional jobs created since we came to power - we have had the most favourable economic circumstances ever for significantly reforming welfare.
Frank Field: One of the reasons I favour a leadership contest is that once you are in a contest a person's full qualities can be judged in a way that they never are in normal circumstances.
Frank Field: A contest would enable us to judge people's competence not just as chancellor of the exchequer but as prime minister, which is a totally different position.

 BBC NEWS | Politics | Brown 'will face PM challengers'
MP Frank Field said he believed Home Secretary John Reid would "certainly" be among those to challenge for a job widely expected to become Mr Brown's.
Mr Field, speaking on BBC Two's Newsnight, said: "Well clearly, Gordon has a right to be part of that contest [to replace Mr Blair] and my guess is certainly one of the other candidates would be Dr Reid.
Mr Field, a former welfare minister, said that although the pensions agreement was being presented as a deal between the premier and the chancellor, it was in fact "game, set and match" to Mr Brown.

 New Statesman: Frank Field, master builder - proposed welfare reform in UK   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Field also proposes extending pensions entitlement to those who work at home as carers, a new insurance-based scheme for the elderly infirm and an attack upon means testing in income support, designed to allow economically attractive exits from the benefits trap which ensnares perhaps a fifth of the population.
Field fails, for example, to quantify the additional level of government borrowing required in the first part of the next century (probably close to [pounds] 100 billion) and charts showing the effect on individuals allow for the 4.6 per cent pension contribution rate, not the 16 per cent needed to produce effective schemes.
What Field has already achieved is a visionary framework cleverly designed to deliver gains to the whole population, allowing us to imagine once again that the remaking of the welfare state can become a resonant Labour priority, as it was in 1945.

FIELD: No, but the first I saw of what Harriet's response was, was a note in the Department when she said that I should actually do that statement.
FIELD: All I'm saying- when I get back in again - all I'm saying is that in that instance for the very poorest pensioners their income now is higher than if we'd actually gone back to what was some people say we should do and that is link pensions to earnings.
FIELD: No, but there is actually a commitment, and part of- the next stage of that is how do we firm that up so it's not just soft words, but it's something which holds us to account, which governs how we behave actually in office, and how we can actually report back to the electorate.

 Frank Field's battle plan to beat yobs | The Guardian | Guardian Unlimited
Britain is moving from the "politics of class to the politics of behaviour" as members of a predominantly poor and white group refuse to accept society's rules and threaten the majority, a leading Labour MP said last night.
Mr Field, who has been MP for Birkenhead since 1979, said that the exceptionally peaceful society that had been created in Britain over the centuries was now under threat.
Before he became an MP, Mr Field was a leading lobbyist for children and the poor, as director of the Child Poverty Action Group from 1969 to 1979, and director of the Low Pay Unit from 1974 to 1980.

 Review of Frank Field   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Field's book is mainly a series of short biographies.
What remains useful in Field's study is that he sets the careers of British and French intellectuals in parallel, and makes some broad distinctions between their national cultures.
But the English, Field observes, "do not take literary personalities as seriously as the French." (153) It is a pity that Field's book does so little to account for this relative indifference, and to contrast the political engagements of intellectuals in the two countries.

For routine use in the field, the guide of choice remains the light and compact (4.5" x 8") Slater Field Guide to Australian Birds (Weldon 1989).
The other Australian field guide, Simpson and Day, is a worthy competitor with color plates of comparable quality to those in Pizzey II, though perhaps not as conveniently arranged.

There are few people better qualified to write on welfare than Frank Field.
Frank Field describes the present policies as "the last throw in politics of central control." In the brilliant essay which gives this book its title, Frank Field compares Lloyd George and Gordon Brown as "titans of welfare reform." Both wanted to assist poor people, but using very different methods.
Gordon Brown, on the other hand, has raised incomes whilst creating "a degree and intensity of dependency for the working population hitherto unknown." He has created a ceiling which many will never be able to break through.
