Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: New Schedule 1 (17 Jul 2012)

Iain Wright: It is entitled “Dated but not bettered”, and I cannot think of a better tribute to him. The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill is still, after 15 sittings, a ragbag Bill. It contains some things with which we agree but also missed opportunities, half-baked and ill thought-through ideas, and policy proposals dusted off the Whitehall shelf. The Bill’s scope to play a part in ushering...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Clause 51 - Commission for Equality and Human Rights (12 Jul 2012)

Iain Wright: I will say two things to my hon. Friend, and I am glad that he has been reading Hansard. First, my strong view is that this clause should not be included in an Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, as it is beyond this ragbag Bill’s scope. Secondly, my hon. Friend was on the Front Bench on Second Reading, and he will remember that in response to interventions from the Opposition the...

Public Bill Committee: Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Clause 51 - Commission for Equality and Human Rights (12 Jul 2012)

Iain Wright: I am on my first paragraph, so let me come on to that later. I have plenty of time and opportunity to do so. I think that everyone was shocked when they saw this clause. An Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill, which is apparently charged with boosting this country’s competitiveness and supposedly enables businesses to be freed from burdensome and unnecessary regulation, should not contain...
