Regulatory Burden On Business;amdt. Line 2:

EDM number 1728A1 in 2001-02, proposed by Brian White on 22/10/2002.

Leave out from `year' to end and add, `the Government's Regulatory Reform Action Plan contained 268 proposals for reform, of which 63 could be by a Regulatory Reform Order, over the next three years; applauds the work of the Regulatory Reform Committee but regrets the continued poor attendance of Conservative honourable and Right honourable Members; welcomes the recent reports about business regimes that put the United Kingdom at the top with the most entrepreneur friendly environment; endorses the greater use of competition assessments in ensuring good policy making; recognises the increasingly important part played by regulatory impact assessments as evidenced by the NAO report in November 2001; notes that more than 95 per cent. of the 4,600 statutory instruments in 2001 had little or no impact on business; congratulates the Government on its intention to publish figures for compliance with the regulatory impact assessment process; calls on the Cabinet Office to ensure full compliance; and hopes for the support of the Opposition to help deliver the commitments in the Regulatory Reform Action Plan.'.

This is a ammendment to 1728.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
