Recipe for disaster: a pro-business Scrutiny Board to prevent laws that hurt corporate profit

Recipe for disaster: a pro-business Scrutiny Board to prevent laws that hurt corporate profit | EU red tape | Scoop.it
The European Commission’s shocking leaked proposal for ”better regulation” would create a pro-business bureaucratic mechanism to prevent new laws - from regulating chemicals to preventing climate change - that could hurt the bottom line of corporations. Add TTIP and its 'regulatory co-operation' and US companies get in on the act too, with extra privileges.

House of Lords EU committee report

Viviane Gravey's insight:

p.79 "The City of London Office in Brussels agreed that the UK was seen as expert in the field. However, they detected a sense that the debate about UK membership of the EU was having an impact on the way the UK was viewed in Brussels. There was a perception that the UK was arguing that “if regulation comes from Brussels it is bad, if it comes from Westminster, it is

good”. They stressed that “the idea that everyone has got it in for the City of London or for the UK is slightly misguided.” Antipathy was directed against the financial industry as a whole rather than London, and the City bore the brunt of such criticism simply because the majority of the wholesale market was in London."

 

p.83 "It is fundamentally important that the Government must ensure that the UK is not perceived by EU colleagues to be pursuing an obstructionist or purely self-interested agenda. The Government needs to demonstrate by its actions and its words that it has the best interests of the Single Market and the EU as a whole at heart, and not just the UK’s own narrow interests."
