PLEDGE FOR STRONG BRITISH PROTECTIONS
“The UK has always been a global leader in setting strong rules which protect public health, ensure worker and consumer safety, and underpin our world-class food, environmental and animal welfare standards.
These protections are the invisible safety net that holds our society together. They create a level playing field that allows businesses to grow and thrive, and provide a guarantee that basic quality and safety standards are being met for everyone – regardless of income.
The fact that the UK has left the EU should not be a reason to weaken these rules. On the contrary, we should use this as an opportunity to strengthen our protections and standards.
I believe that strong, well-enforced protections are a crucial part of building a prosperous, sustainable and fair society – where people are confident that nature, habitats and wildlife are protected; that the food they eat is of a high quality; that their rights and safety at work are guaranteed; that the rivers their children play in are clean; and that the products they use are safe.
As the Government makes important decision on the future of regulation, I pledge to champion Britain’s high standards and commonsense rules, and to make the case for them to be maintained and strengthened.”
