Richard Jones, head of policy and public affairs at the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health hit back at the announcement that the Government was planning to cut back on "more than 3,000 regulations."
The talk of reducing around 3,000 regulations and at the same time focusing on health and safety is misleading. There are only 200 health and safety regulations in total, so any reduction in these will be a tiny percentage of the 3,000, and so far only 21 have been considered.
