Anti-regulation drive imminent

Businesses and charities may benefit from the government's next anti-regulation drive due to be launched at the end of the month.

Tony Blair has asked Cabinet Office minister, Lord Macdonald, to prepare and publish an action plan on the next stages of the push against unnecessary red-tape by the end of January.

All government departments are required to submit proposals for regulation that can be easily wiped from the statute book under the government’s regulatory reform process.

Before the last election, departments identified 50 measures to be scrapped, but only one has so far gone.

The Department of Trade and industry has proposed reform of the Unsolicited Goods and Services Act, which business claims hinders the advance of e-commerce.
