Government considers regulation hotlines

Senior official says SME hotline could be the first of many

New regulation hotlines, aimed at providing advice to companies across the
country, could soon be rolled out in number of industries according to a senior
government official.

Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform chief executive
Jitinder Kohli told the Commons Regulatory Reform Commission that the government
is interested in rolling out a series of regulation help lines if a pilot SME
hotline, currently on trial, proves successful.

`If it does work then a number of other regulators…are thinking about whether
it can be rolled out across the board,’ he said.

Regulatory reform minister Ian Lucas described the project as an `absolutely
critical area’ at the hearing.

`We will be keeping a very close eye on it,’ he said.
