In my statement, I was clear that we need to involve business in these decisions, but we have to get the balance right between public health and business. When it comes to the new deal, the Government operates on a wish to speak more directly with business and to understand its concerns, because I recognise the points that Craig Hoy has raised about the level of regulation that is coming through. However, we will get the best solutions through working with business to ensure that we bring in things in a timely manner that allows it to work with us to ensure that the public health benefits are met.
