What is freedom to you?

The Your Freedom website was launched on 1 July by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.  The website gives you an opportunity to suggest ideas on repealing unnecessary laws and stripping away excessive regulation on businesses and third sector/civil society organisations.

The questions you are asked to respond to are:

  • Civil liberties:  Which current laws would you like to remove or change because they restrict your civil liberties?
  • Cutting business and third sector regulations:  Which regulations do you think should be removed or changed to make running your business or organisation as simple as possible?
  • Repealing unnecessary laws:  Which offences do you think we should remove or change, and why?

From the website:

We’re working to create a more open and less intrusive society. We want to restore Britain’s traditions of freedom and fairness, and free our society of unnecessary laws and regulations – both for individuals and businesses.

This site gives you the chance to suggest how we can do this. Your ideas will inform government policy and some of your proposals could end up making it into bills we bring before Parliament to change the law.

So if there are any laws or regulations you’d like us to do away with, then first, check if there are any similar ideas here already and then add your comments to it and rate it to move it up the list. If it’s not here, then add it! And remember – we want you to suggest ideas for removing laws and regulations, rather than ideas for creating them.

If you want to have your say please visit the Your Freedom website.
