§ Dr. Goodson-Wickes
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what progress he has to report on the deregulation initiative as it affects his Department. 
§ Mr. Oppenheim
The deregulation initiative is making good progress in my Department. For example, we have laid six deregulation orders to date, and are pursuing radical improvements to the business environment through the Arbitration Bill, which, as the hon. Member will know, is before the House for consideration.
