Red Tape ChallengeA cross-Government programme to tackle inherited stock of regulationsA public website to let business and taxpayers have their say about burdensome regulations they faceIntention is to root out unnecessary, overcomplicated regulation that strangles businesses and economic growth7 8. 8Red Tape Challenge: Tackling stock8The Prime Minister set a challenge in April 2011:We need to tackle regulation with vigour both to free businesses to compete and create jobs, and give people greater freedom and personal responsibility... Our starting point is that a regulation should go or its aim achieved in a different, non-government way, unless there is a clear and good justification for government being involved. And even where there is a good case for this, we must sweep away unnecessary bureaucracy and complexity, end gold-plating of EU directives, and challenge overzealous administration and enforcement http://www.number10.gov.uk/news/letter-from-the-prime-minister-on-cutting-red-tape/ 9. 9UNCLASSIFIED7.

Such common and low-risk goods, which we do not believe were the intended focus of the legislation, should be exempted.(May 26): We wish to allow guests to pre-order champagne for special occasions (to be waiting for them in a B&B room) or a bottle of wine to go with their dinner in the self-catering accommodation this is a service (we are not next door to pubs or shops) and unlikely to create profit. For this we would have to go through the same licensing procedure and costs as a pub.(May 23): This regulation requires that no smoking signs be placed at each entrance to smoke-free premises. The ban on smoking in enclosed public spaces has now been in force for a number of years we see little need for businesses to continually replace signage [..] The signs are also unsightly as well as unneeded(Nov 14): Extend the qualifying period to 2 years compulsory mediation like you are introducing in other areas such as divorce.4.
