In February this year, the Prime Minister asked the TIGRR to explore and recommend ways in which the UK can reshape its approach to regulation and seize new opportunities from Brexit with its newfound regulatory freedom.
The Prime Minister has thanked the Taskforce for its report and assured them that the Government will give it the detailed consideration it deserves, consult widely across industry across industry and civil society, and publish a response as soon as it is practicable.
This report shows what a fully United Kingdom can achieve given sufficient ambition and vision on the part of its Government, and we look forward to drawing on the work of the Taskforce in the months and years ahead as we build back better.
