Non-Existent Department Issues Government Report Err, There’s No BERR, Prime Minister

Lord Young has a worthy report out today, he was once a Minister for Maggie in what was known as the “Department for Enterprise” with a whooshy 80s TV advertising campaign by Saatchi. His report on “Making it easier to set up and grow a business” is being put out by BERR, a department that no longer exists. No, Minister…

The new department into which it was subsumed is a merger of the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) and the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR). It has been since 2009, since the Government News Service doesn’t seem to actually realise, called the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
