Clegg invites public to help battle red tape

Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has launched a new Government website which urges members of the public and businesses to complain about every instance of unnecessary law and excessive red tape.

The Your Freedom website will collect all suggestions for abolishing excessive Government regulations and rules.

The Government hopes the website will help strip away restrictive regulations that stop businesses from innovating.
Clegg said: “For too long new laws have taken away your freedom, interfered in everyday life and made it difficult for businesses to get on.

"Be demanding of your liberty. Be insistent about your rights. Every time you have had to fill out three versions of the same form, tell us about it. Every time you have felt snooped on by the state, tell us about it. Every unnecessary law, every mind-numbing rule, every time your rights have been infringed – now is the time to tell us about it."
