Sir David Arculus spoke about several issues at this event. He began by talking about his four years as head of the Government's Better Regulation Task Force, now renamed the Better Regulation Commission, and under the leadership of Rick Haythornwaite given increased powers. He followed by explaining and debating some of the issues surrounding the foreign ownership of UK companies, again drawing to some extent on his own personal experiences of his time at O2. He concluded by saying that what he was really concerned about was the health of UK plc, and he believes that both these issues, Regulation and Taxation, are at the centre of the debate.
