Mowlam joins forces with North East Chamber of Commerce in war on red tape

Cabinet Office red tape 'slasher' Mo Mowlam has linked-up with the North East Chamber of Commerce to outline a common agenda to tackle bureaucracy and unnecessary regulation.

Mowlam was in Durham today on one of a number of visits the government has planned to learn from the business community how it can help reduce the burden of red tape.

Speaking to business people and public sector managers, she said: ‘We have a common agenda on tackling unnecessary red tape and form filling. I very much welcome the chamber’s views and ideas for tackling red tape here and in the EU. We will get the best results where we work together to create the best possible framework for implementation of necessary regulations.’

Bill Midgley, president of the North East Chamber of Commerce, said: ‘We are concerned about the impact regulation has on the competitiveness of small and medium sized companies, whether it comes from Whitehall or Brussels. Keeping pace with regulations takes time and adds costs to businesses.’
