New Website to Tackle Business Regulation
A new website to be introduced by the Government will give the people their opportunity to say which rules and regulations should be chucked out.
Politicians will have 3 months to justify the rule / law, or it will be removed.
David Cameron has pledged that the Coalition will be the first government in modern history to leave office with less regulation than it started with, he wants to “free businesses” to compete and create jobs and give people “greater freedom and personal responsibility”.
He said: “Of course we need proper standards, for example in areas like fire safety and food safety. So where regulation is well-designed and proportionate, it should stay.
“But it is hard to believe that we need government regulations on issues such as ice cream van musical jingles. That’s why I want us to be the first government in modern history to leave office having reduced the overall burden of regulation, rather than increasing it.”
The stock of more than 21,000 regulations will be published on the website in phases, with those affecting retailers the first to appear, followed by the hospitality and food and drink industry.
Well – I can’t wait till they get to those covering offices.
