While this report is now over 15-years-old, the basic skills issues it highlights are similar to those we have today.

Prompted by the UK's poor performance on the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS), the Moser report painted a stark picture of the nation's basic skills deficit, recommending clear targets to the government for tackling the adult numeracy issue in the UK.

A fresh start: improving literacy and numeracy. The report of the working group chaired by Sir Claus Moser. 1999.
