It was way back in 2010 that I talked about the coalition’s plans to reduce red tape for small businesses, particularly in the manufacturing industry. Do any of you think that this has happened yet?
Once again, in the Queen’s Speech in May this year, the Coalition said that new legislation will “cut red tape”. There is a great summary at The Manufacturer journal about what this would mean for manufacturing. Can’t see anything in there about how the red tape will be cut – can you?
And, of course, there has been a lot in the news about the Beechcroft Report on no fault dismissals. Again, an informative piece from The Manufacturer, who spoke to people throughout the manufacturing industry about how they think this legislation would affect business.
I’d be really interested to know what legislation you would like to see relaxed as it really interferes with your day to day business.engineering, LCM Systems, legislation, load cells, machinery directive, manufacturing, red tape
