The Government are introducing a One-in, One-out rule to cap the cost of regulation to business.

I am satisfied that the one-in, one-out rule as it currently stands will start to bring about the radical change required to the culture of regulation in Whitehall.

While regulation is necessary to protect consumers, employees and the environment, Government should ensure that all regulation is proportionate and targeted.
