An inquiry headed by former cabinet minister Alan Milburn concludes that professions in Britain are drawing talent from an ever narrower and richer segment of society.
The UK Panel on Fair Access to the professions (0) has published its final report. Lead by the Rt Hon. Alan Milburn its 18 panel members examined the barriers and pathways to reaching professions for all people - regardless of their background.
The report was commissioned by the Prime Minister following the New Opportunities White Paper which examined the issue of social mobility and its importance for the economy and social justice, ensuring everyone has the chance to fulfil their potential and secure the jobs of the future.
