Arising from a commitment in Partnership 2000 for inclusion, employment and competitiveness the steering group on basic income was established. The group commissioned a number of reports and finished its work in March 2001. No further reports are expected from the group. The group's work contributed to the development of the Government's Green Paper on basic income which was published in September 2002 on foot of a commitment in the 1997 Government programme, An Action Programme for the Millennium.
