A `white paper’ is an official report, in which the government outlines its policy on an issue of current concern. The report is usually not very bulky, and it is made available to the public. Such a report began to be called `white paper’ because it was bound in paper of that colour. A couple of weeks ago, a judge said that corrupt individuals must be hanged from lamp posts. Since there are some people of questionable reputation in Parliament, it would be interesting to see if the government brings out a white paper regarding this matter.
