Chadwick’s Butchers assist in drive for red tape cuts

Chadwick’s Butchers in Balham has been working with the government’s Business, Innovations & Skills department (BIS) in a project aimed at cutting red tape for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Gary Chadwick, working with senior civil servant Beth White and the chairman of the National Federation of Meat And Food Traders, Roger Kelsey, did a case study of his business, looking at the problems suffered due to current legislation.  Their findings were reported to Brussels and the European Union.

This has resulted in in discussions with business secretary Vince Cable and House of Lords peer Lord Curry.

The south London butcher gave feedback on the impact of the change in employment laws and the cutting of layers of legislation.

Gary said: “The rebalance of employment to better support the employer is a positive move. The cutting of red tape gives entrepreneurs the freedom to express themselves.”

He told Cable and Curry: “Removing bureaucratic barriers has given us the confidence to expand our business.”

Gary will continue to work with BIS to improve the legislative environment for SMEs.
