Research carried out by YouGov for Zurich shows that 70% of 'senior decision makers' from Small or Medium Size Businesses (SME's) support today's announcement to cut red tape. Richard Coleman, Director of SME at Zurich Insurance said:

The fact that SMEs tell us this concerns them more than access to finance is a clear indicator that they still feel over-burdened by red tape.
