"Despite acknowledging that the consultation was prompted by an acknowledgement that “there were weaknesses in the framework, so that the legislation has not always achieved its intended outcome”, the Government is not planning any significant legislative amendments to the current framework, and has certainly fallen short of the expectations set by the Whistleblowing Commission."

See: Whistleblowing Framework (pdf)

From the government's paper: "The actions in response to this call for evidence are aimed at facilitating a cultural change. We hope that as a result, employers will start to embrace the role of whistleblowing and we will be identifying employers who have done this in order to show others what value it can bring."
