UK Government Pushes Back on Expensive EU Regulations

A rule for everything


Brussels regulations on issues ranging from packaging to working hours are hurting the UK economy, according to the report.

Prime Minister David Cameron will use its findings to push for the UK to reshape its ties to the EU.

The Foreign Office report, published today, reveals 400 laws passed by Brussels in the past three years alone were costing British businesses a massive £676million a year. Research at think tank Open Europe has claimed the ridiculous rules cost Britain £124bn between 1998 and 2010.
