Minister 'frustrated' by red tape delays

Hutton admits that delays to setting up committee to cut regulation has left him frustrated too

The government minister responsible for business has admitted that he is
‘frustrated’ by how long it has taken to set up a body to cut red tape.

John
Hutton, speaking to the Daily Telegraph
, said that the moves were
nevertheless ‘on track.’

The government last year introduced legislation enabling it to ‘fast-track’
deregulatory moves, but so far,
not
a single piece of ‘red tape’ has been reformed using the structure
.

‘I’m as frustrated as everyone else,’ Hutton said.

The committee set up to look at cutting unecessary burdens on business was
now in place, however, and would soon be considering as many as 20 different
reforms.

‘Now it’s up and running we should be looking to use it to the maximum
benefit that we can,’ he said.
