In 1942 Beveridge's report concluded that the State "should not stifle incentive, opportunity, responsibility".
Now, in the 70th anniversary year, we see welfare recipients saying
"We're taking advantage of the system, but that's the system's fault –
It's ridiculous, but I'm better off volunteering than earning – we're
well off and I'm not going to give that up until I have to"
How relevant are Beveridge's concerns today?
