Time to bite back

July 4, 2003

As acting chair of the Better Regulation Review Group, I was surprised by the contents of your article "DFES bitten by its own red-tape watchdog" ( THES, June ).

The group's work is important. The Department for Education and Skills is taking it seriously, and our working relationship is good. It is early days and, inevitably, it will take time for the problem of unnecessary bureaucracy to be properly addressed. The group's establishment by the DFES is an important start, and it will, I hope, make a genuine difference.
