As set out in the Budget documentation, any regulatory proposal likely to impose a major new burden on business will require clearance from the Panel for Regulatory Accountability, chaired by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, based on a thorough impact assessment of the proposal agreed by the Cabinet Office Regulatory Impact Unit.

The criteria for defining major proposals will be based on that set out in the Regulatory Impact Assessment guidance available at and copies are available in the Library.
