The Health & Safety Elephant
A task force headed by Lord Young will draw up plans for “tearing down the walls of bureaucracy” if the Tories win power.
Oh Hum.......Elephant in the room
The EU Health & Safety Directive was first brought into effect in 1989 by what was then called the Council of European Communities. Essentially the measure was put forth as what is termed a "framework directive." This makes it a binding commitment on the part of European Union member states, to continuously improve their workplace health and safety standards through domestic legislation in order to conform to provisions contained within the directive.
