Cutting thousands of pages of bureaucratic guidance will mean the Government becoming the first administration in modern history to have reduced red tape for businesses over the course of a parliament, David Cameron has claimed.
We will be the first government in modern history to finish a parliament with less regulation in place than we started with.
Now I know that doesn't sound a huge amount but... small businesses, they have always been saying it's the red tape as much as the taxes and other things that are holding them back.
And if we want a recovery for all, and in every part of the country, small business is the lifeblood of our economy. Over 90% of firms are small firms, they account for 60% of private sector employment. They are the ones that are going to provide the jobs and the growth and I want to help them.
