UK Government to free business from red tape


In a speech in mid March to the Federation of Small Businesses in Liverpool, Mark Prisk (Minister of State for Business and Enterprise) revealed Business Secretary Vince Cable’s (who was recalled to a meeting at 10 Downing Street) plans for a range of measures to be included in the Growth Review that will allow businesses to grow, including:

• a public audit of almost 22,000 statutory instruments that are currently on the statute book; and

• a moratorium to exempt businesses with fewer than ten employees and genuine start-ups from new domestic regulation for three years.

Philip Henson, Partner, and head of employment law @ Bargate Murray solicitors reviews the plans.
