New Labour thinking on the family is discussed within a comparative analysis of the treatment of the family in different Welfare States. The continuity with policy thinking under the Thatcher and Major Governments is demonstrated and questions raised about the extent to which a change of administration has changed or intensified the thrust of the policy. In certain respects, New Labour's approaches to the family are more reminiscent of the old Soviet regimes of Eastern Europe in their demands of women as both carers and workers than of the transformation that had been anticipated before the election.
