The Coalition Government is committed to restoring and defending your freedom – and we're asking you to participate.
Update 10am Friday 2 July
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.
We've had an excellent response so far, with over 2,205 ideas, 7,419 comments and 18,000 votes in our first day. It's fantastic that so many of you want to participate - and we apologise if you've had problems viewing pages. We've taken measures to improve the running of the site, and hope that it will run more smoothly now.
One of the measures we took was to hold on moderating on launch day - 1 July 2010, so we're now working on removing duplications and making sure they're tagged properly, according to our moderation policy.
