Red tape culture stifling enterprise says MP
6:00am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
A HAMPSHIRE MP has urged the Government to cut even more red tape to help small businesses.
Caroline Dinenage welcomed the progress made by the Government to support British businesses but pushed the Government to go even further in eradicating bureaucracy.
As part of the Red Tape Challenge, the Government has committed to scrapping or improving at least 3,000 regulations, while the one in, one out rule on regulations is estimated to have saved businesses around £1 billion in regulatory costs.
Caroline Dinenage, pictured, said: “It is good news for small businesses (SMEs) that this Government has made a firm and meaningful commitment to strip back bureaucracy and support manufacturers.
“SMEs are often referred to as the lifeblood of our economy.
“We must match these words with action and eradicate the lethargic culture of bureaucracy that can clog up the procurement process and hold back British businesses.”
Ms Dinenage has been involved in the creation of the Daedalus Enterprise Zone and the ‘Bridging the Gap’ Regional Growth Fund for new and growing businesses in Gosport, Portsmouth and Havant.
