Burchardt, Tania and Propper, Carol (1999) Does the UK have a private welfare class? Journal of social policy, 28 (4). pp. 643-665. ISSN 1469-7823
The use of private welfare services in the UK has risen. But relatively little is known about the patterns of use of private welfare services. This article investigates whether there is a private welfare class, and how attitudes to welfare state spending are linked to use of private services. It finds that there is considerable use of the private sector, but the size of the group consistently using a range of private welfare services is small. Changes in attitudes to public financing of welfare spending do not appear to be directly linked to use of private services.
