remove the legislation that dictates that departments have to spend ALL of their budget for the year

Currently the budgeting system of the government means that a department, local authority or council have to spend their entire budget for the year or else they will not get as much next year, which inevitably leads to departments spending money needlessly when it could just be saved for reinvestment in the next year like a department/constituency/council savings account.

Scrap passports for horses

Horse passports do not serve the purpose they are intended to serve. They are beaurocratic and an imposition on horse owners. The cost to horse owners is effectively a tax on horse ownership. Horse passports should therefore be scrapped, or made voluntary rather than compulsory.

Removal of the Second Doctor’s Signature Requirement In Order to Procure an Abortion

The Abortion Act in the UK allows abortion under certain circumstances, which must be agreed on by two separate doctors.

In practice, abortion is provided on demand, and the second doctor's signature is superflous. It has created an unessecary beaurocratic part of the process and it serves no purpose. Removal of the requirement would bring an outdated act in line with modern practice.
