Rules Britannia | #ThinkTent2021

One in, two out. Successive attempts to cut Britain’s red tape have floundered, with governments of every colour failing to tame the size of the regulatory state. Post-Brexit and post-pandemic, the UK has a very specific window in which to take bold action. Can we establish a better regulatory framework now we are outside of the EU, or do politicians need to fundamentally rethink their attitudes towards regulation?
