§ Mr. Colvin
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what is the Government's policy towards deregulation; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Kilfoyle
We are committed to ensuring that regulations are fair, properly costed, simple to understand and practical to comply with. We aim to deliver responsible and responsive regulation for business, particularly small firms, and the citizen. I have appointed Chris Haskins to chair a new Better Regulation Task Force and the Deregulation Unit has similarly been renamed the Better Regulation Unit to reflect the fact that our priority is to get regulation right.
