Small business backs beekeepers

It's catching! The Forum of Private Businesses (FPB) representing 25,000 UK firms is lending its support to UK beekeepers trying to ensure that the bee inspectorate does not suffer cuts. Yesterday the UK Minister for Bees denied cuts were inevitable.

FPB, campaigners against red tape, see no problem with tighter bee regulation:
Nick Goulding, chief executive of the FPB, said that although small businesses had welcomed recent Government commitments to reduce regulation and red tape, "we have always argued that good regulation can have positive effects ... If the Government is serious about wanting to trim regulation and red tape we would be happy to provide ministers with a hit list that will help small businesses and at the same time maintain a large population of busy honey bees working for all of us".
