Findings of Health and Safety review to be published today‏

Lord Young will today publish the report of his commission on health and safety. The Tory Grandee commenced the review before the General Election as a Conservative Party policy exercise but within days of the General election it received a formal mandate from the Prime Minister:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-11546919
The review is widely expected to have a business bias with a serious likelihood that the burden of proof in civil law will be amended to make it harder to claim compensation for injury.
