Law/Regulation Repeal

Asked for the Prime Minister’s comments on the launch of a national campaign to encourage people to suggest laws and regulations they would like to see removed, the PMS said that there was a commitment to repeal laws, and there would be a bill to allow us to do that. We would consider all the suggestions put forward.

Asked what would happen if there was one case that had backing from most people, the PMS said that we would consider the weight of public opinion, but we would also look at the merits of proposals.

Asked if anything could be suggested for example the smoking ban, the PMS said that people could come forward with any suggestion they wanted, and we would consider those suggestions on merit.

  1. The proposed imposition of Digital Radio is totally irresponsible at a time of economic difficulty.
    Millions will be spent on replacing perfectly good FM radios and refitting cars.
    Portable radios using FM last for a very long time on their batteries. On a portable Digital Model you are lucky if new batteries last a day.
    Repeal this proposal and save millions.

  2. If you want to cut the costs of Local Government impose a single tier system in the Counties.In Wiltshire a plethora of local councils have been replaced by two-Wiltshire Council and Swindon.
    Posts have been axed,surplus property and land sold off, and huge savings made.
    This is much better than the tinkering that is going on in some counties with shared Chief Executives and the like.The whole objective of this is to maintain local patronage in the same hands.
    A switch to Unitary Counties-with Unitary Authorities for the large towns-is the answer to improved efficiency and cost cutting and should be imposed.
