Mr. Neil Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what specific proposals he has for the simplification of company law, especially as regards the regulatory burden on smaller companies.
Work is in hand on the proposals relating to company law requirements outlined in the White Paper, "Lifting the Burden" (Command 9571). More generally, I am considering the case for further reforms, with the desirability of simplification and the needs of small companies very much in mind.
