Bureaucracy Reduction Cheers British Businesses

Making it easier to hire people and prosper ... What a concept


The new U.K. Business Minister, Michael Fallon, has promised a "drive to cut red tape" to boost business growth to help the country out of recession. For one ice cream man this can't come soon enough.

George Manoli is the manager of Mr. Whippy ice creams, a nationwide fleet of vans that visit carnivals, concerts, weddings, fairs, schools and housing estates, selling their special blend of ice cream along with a range of hot and cold snacks.

Manoli's own regular route is around the town of Stockport, on the outskirts of Manchester. Due to various rules and regulations he says his job has become increasingly difficult.
