'Can't touch this': Vince's MC Hammer moment
Business Secretary Vince Cable today announced a plan to ease the burden of regulation on small businesses in a bid to boost the economy. The plans would include a three-year break for small businesses from new regulation in addition to scrapping plans for extending parents' right to request flexible working and scrapping new rights for time off to train. The government has also vowed to review some 22,000 existing government regulations on business, with ministers forced to justify maintaining any that are challenged.
