To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to reduce the number of regulations which affect business competitiveness; and what progress they have made in publishing the details and numbers of regulations repealed by each department since May 2010.

Since May 2010 Her Majesty's Government have launched a number of reviews including a review of employment law, a review of regulation affecting farmers and food processors and Lord Hodgson's Civil Society Red Tape Task Force. All departments are also conducting reviews scrutinising the overall stock of regulation as part of the "one-in, one-out" policy, alongside legacy measures inherited from the previous Administration. These have yet to conclude and so to date no significant regulations have been revoked.
