I have co-authored a new report for campaign group We Own It. In the report we assess government proposals to privatise National Air Traffic Services and the Land Registry, and involve the private sector in Ordnance Survey and Channel 4. These world-leading public services are all working successfully in public ownership – they are efficient and innovative. Not only that, but these public assets make millions in profit for the public purse. Privatising them will mean the government gets one off cash but future generations will lose out forever on the ongoing profits.
The full report can be read on the We Own It website here.
