HC Deb 30 March 2000 vol 347 c240W
35. Mr. Blizzard

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what initiatives his Department is taking in conjunction with other Departments to reduce the burdens on business. [115697]

Ms Hewitt

The Small Business Service is working closely with other Government Departments to reduce burdens on business. For example it is working closely with the Inland Revenue's business support teams to make it easier for employers to establish and operate their payroll operations; and it is working with the HSE to help implement the Health and Safety Commission's strategy for small firms.
