To date, of over 1,200 regulations considered so far under Red Tape Challenge, the Government have agreed to scrap or substantially overhaul well over 50%.

The Red Tape Challenge reforms made, or about to be made, so far across all Departments are set out in the Government's latest Statement of New Regulation published on 28 February 2012. Many further changes will be announced and implemented in the coming months.
