Business Services Sector Champion
Sir Michael Snyder
“Professional and business services are a vital part of the British economy which is responsible for millions of jobs and valuable export earnings. The UK needs a smart regulatory environment that provides adequate protections while minimising the burdens on businesses and individuals. The Red Tape Challenge offers a good opportunity for those of us with practical experience of the impact of regulations to provide useful feedback to the Government and we look forward to contributing our thoughts on improving the regulatory system.”
