24 The Relationship Between the Role of the State and Citizenship Privatisation A monopoly is when there is only one supplier of a service. Prior to the Conservative years (1979), many services were a state controlled monopoly. A free market economy, with its emphasis upon the forces of supply and demand, cannot co-exist with monopolies. These state run monopolies were also seen within the context of increases in the role of the state, increases in the size of an inefficient public sector, increases in public spending and increases in the size and power of the bureaucracy.

One policy which tackled at a stroke all of these problems for the free market was that of privatisation. Privatisation can take a number of forms.
