Regulatory Reform Bill update

The government is to write new safeguards safeguards into a controversial bill giving ministers sweeping powers to change the law after Labour's chief whip in the Lords warned it would otherwise face defeat.

Good news I would have thought, after all it looks like the government might be listening to the people for once. However in the article it doesn’t tell us once what those safeguards will be so Labour will most likely do the most minor change possible which will end up on the news and people will think it’s a great victory.

Unless they have announced what the safeguards will be already I don’t expect it to be anything significant.
