HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c833W
Mr. Brady

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if she will make a statement on the work of the Better Regulation Task Force in reducing unnecessary regulations for which her Department is responsible. [63158]

Mr. Stephen Twigg

We have taken forward the recommendations in the Better Regulation Task Force's report "Red Tape Affecting Head Teachers" in April 2000. For those recommendations relating to deregulation, we have taken appropriate measures in the current Education Bill, in particular for deregulation of school governance arrangements, and the streamlining of some governance functions.
