People urged to submit final ideas
09 September 2010
The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg today urged the public to send in their final suggestions to the Your Freedom website.
The Deputy Prime Minister thanked the public for their contribution to the Your Freedom debate and said the site would not be accepting new comments or ideas from tomorrow and urged people to submit any remaining ideas so ministers and officials could start considering them.
He said: 'This site has given you the chance to tell us which laws and regulations you think we should get rid of. And we've had an excellent response, receiving thousands of ideas, comments and votes.'
'It is the raucous, unscripted debates that always throw up the best ideas. Your feedback will inform government policy and some of your proposals could end up making it into bills we bring before Parliament to change the law.
'You’ve got until the end of Friday to submit your own idea if it isn't yet on the site,' he added.
Since the site was launched on 1 July, 46,000 people have left 14,000 ideas and 95,000 comments in an online dialogue designed to help the Coalition Government cut red tape, repeal unnecessary laws and support civil liberties.
Submit your ideas to Your Freedom by 5pm on Friday 10 September.
