The Government is committed to reducing burdens on business and consumers by reforming regulations where appropriate to make sure they are best suited to the UK and to help grow the economy. We have made a series of regulatory reform announcements as part of our Smarter Regulation programme, including reforms to wine retained EU Law (REUL), product safety regulations and drip pricing.
As part of this, we have already reformed or revoked over 1000 pieces of REUL. In addition to the list of around 600 coming in the Bill, the Financial Services and Markets Bill and the Procurement Bill will repeal around 500 pieces of REUL. This means more than 2,000 revocations and reforms are already completed or under way.
