On the BIS site, Vince Cable said:
“We are today publishing Mr Beecroft’s final report as submitted to our department to dispel some of the myths that have become associated with the report. Because of ongoing interest we reached a view that it is in the public interest to allow people to have access to its content. We have always been clear that sensible and well thought-through reforms need a strong evidence base behind them, not just anecdotal experiences.”
But there doesn’t seem to be any evidence in the report and the things siad in the report don’t seem to match with the research that I’ve seen elesewhere. So the report is pretty much worthless to me.
