We have accepted 159 recommendations and are actively considering what could be possible on a further 31.
The Farming Regulation Task Force was set up in July 2010 to carry out an independent review. Its report to Government, published in May 2011, recommended over 200 ways of reducing unnecessary “red tape” and reducing regulatory burdens on farmers and food processors.
The Government published its full response on 21 February 2012. Out of 220 Task Force recommendations (with a further 18 recommendations directed at the Food Standards Agency), we have accepted 159 and are actively considering what could be possible on a further 31.
