Commenting on the speech on Enterprise and Red Tape by the Business Secretary, Tim Thomas, Head of Employment Policy at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said:

“Time spent on red-tape is frequently a drag on manufacturers’ business and a direct cost they don’t need. Today’s speech by the Business Secretary will be welcomed by companies who will want to see a more ambitious approach to better regulation, backed up by businesses pinpointing the red tape that Governments needs to focus on now.  All regulators, and all parts of government,  need to share responsibility for delivering the  £10 billion of cuts pledged, with any new regulation being presumed to be the last, not first, resort."
