“The increasing burden of regulation can pose very real problems for businesses in the UK. Richard McDonald ‘s Taskforce has a real opportunity to make an important contribution in how we can look to change the culture of Whitehall. We have to move away from the view that the only way to solve problems is to regulate.

“By cutting unnecessary red tape we can ensure that the right environment is created to stimulate innovation and growth, in this case allowing the farming sector to contribute to the economic recovery of Britain.

“The Better Regulation Executive will be supporting the taskforce in identifying how life can be made easier for the farming community, and I commend Defra for initiating this review.”
