And the government still has no plan to stop the tide of regulation that swamps firms, according to the report. Last year, the coalition promised a “bonfire of red tape”. It said it would only introduce regulation as a last resort and bring in a “one in one out” policy that would see out-dated rules scrapped when new ones are made. However, earlier this week the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) said new red tape – including regulations from the EU – would cost firms an extra £23bn over the next four years.Yesterday at Prime Minister’s questions, Cameron said he wanted to see fewer regulations and praised business secretary Vince Cable for his approach to the issue.However, Cameron’s aides privately say he is frustrated at what he sees as Cable’s lack of urgency when it comes to scrapping British rules and limiting the impact of European ones. In the face of rising unemployment, the BCC yesterday warned the private sector would be less likely to pick up the slack following public sector job cuts if the regulatory burden continues to increase. Alexander Ehmann, head of regulation at the Institute of Directors, said: “Today’s findings underline the immediate need for a coherent de-regulatory strategy across Whitehall.” center_img Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoWanderoamIdentical Twins Marry Identical Twins – But Then The Doctor Says, “STOP”WanderoamUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndo More From Our Partners Colin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.com Share Wednesday 16 February 2011 8:52 pmlast_img
